It is to be noted that although it is clear to be everyone that Nick is minimally talented as an actor, he does have a passion for theater and has an eye for improvisation as can be observed from the way he describes the characters of the play.
14. What prank does Puck play on Bottom? He transforms him into a bear.
3.1: Bottom re-enters the stage after a break, but his head has been transformed into that of a donkey—unbeknownst to him. He declares the men are playing a joke to make him afraid. As Snout tries to tell him that he’s changed, Bottom replies Snout must only be seeing his own “asshead.”
He listens in on Bottom’s acting and finds it strange, then uses magic to turn his head into an ass’s head. This is appropriate because Puck considers Bottom an “ass,” or fool, which is, in fact, what he thinks most mortals to be. It is also a pun on Bottom’s name, as human buttocks are called both bottoms and asses.
Robin Goodfellow happens upon them and transforms Bottom’s head into that of an ass. Abandoned by his terrified friends, Bottom sings. His singing awakens Titania, who, under the influence of the flower’s magic, falls in love with him. She takes him away to sleep in her bower.
During the mechanicals’ rehearsal in the woods, Bottom is transformed into an ass by Robin, whereupon Titania falls in love with him. Along with the other mechanicals, Flute flees the rehearsal in the woods after Bottom’s transformation.
When Bottom steps aside, temporarily out of view of the other craftsmen, Puck transforms Bottom’s head into that of an ass. When the ass-headed Bottom reenters the scene, the other men become terrified and run for their lives. Delighting in the mischief, Puck chases after them.
Why does Bottom want a prologue written for the play? He wants one written so that his character can read it to audience, assuring them that no harm will come to the actors either by sword or by lion. He thinks the ladies will go into a swoon or else panic.
Puck decides then to play a trick on Bottom. He turns Bottom’s head into the head of a donkey – an ass. Bottom does not realize he has the head of an ass and when the others see him then flee in terror, he is perplexed as to why they fled.
What does Puck do to Bottom while he is rehearsing in the woods? He turns him into a donkey.
Bottom’s initial response to being offered the role of Pyramus, the male lead that commits and is in love with Thisbe, is to be quite pleased. He feels a great deal of excessive pride in his abilities as an actor, even though he has never really performed before.
Flute’s misgiving about his assignment is that he is growing a beard and women don’t have beards—so how can he play the part of a woman? … Bottom requests, “…let me play Thisbe, too,” because he wants to wear the mask the character will be wearing and use a small voice, as Flute will have to do to portray a woman.
