This was the first time I had seen this play. I googled it and we read through the synopsis. It's a fun play. There is a lot of romancing going on and very funny characters. It was enjoyable to watch. There is also a little play within the play about the Nine Worthies, a carving from the 13C of 9 great heroes. Heroes like Alexander the Great, Hector of Troy, Charlemagne to name three, who are supposed to personify the epitome of chivalry. We didn't know all of them and we had some interesting discussions about why these men in particular were considered so worthy. What makes a person worthy of being carved out of stone?
...meanwhile back at home we have been choosing auditions for A Midsummer Night's Dream. Tristan has chosen a monologue of Puck's. He also has vowed to Nicole (his break dance teacher) that he will practice his head stands (anywhere and everywhere). So this is the result.
And finally Tristan is performing next week in New York City at the Oxford Shakespeare Company in the Merry Wives of Windsor. He is playing a goblin that torments Falstaff. It is a very small part but a great experience to be in a "grown up" production! We have rehearsals in the city during the week and 4 performances on the weekend. I am looking forward to spending some time in the city.
