CHARACTER PROFILE:
QUINCE.

A person looking into the camera with afro texture hair wearing gold hoops against a grey green background

Quince, a carpenter and also the play writer and director of the play for the Duke’s wedding. However I have some trouble getting my troupe to accept their parts. Even worse during a rehearsal Bottom is changed and doesnt return home.

I am all set to give up on my dreams of putting on a play for the nobles but then he returns and is changed no longer. We perform our play and it is met well. I could not be more proud of my actors.
