Verses written for a performance of scenes from Shakespeare that I directed

William Re-Shakespeared


Opening ACT I: Clown enters looks at the audience, scratches his head under his hat, and then addresses the audience:

The Writer's genius you will surely see.
The Actor's? - Why, we'll pardon'd be
For all the flaws wherewith we play
If only to the end you stay;
You needs must feel how much we love
The Bard, who frowns from up above
Lest we should mouth unprettily
The lines he penned so wittily.......
Dare I continue with this silly verse?
It adds naught to my wit - nor purse.

Scenes in the first Act - Intermission 

Opening ACT II - Clown re-enters and strokes his chin, looking at the audience as it settles down after the interval. He speaks:

Are you yet here? 'Tis well, 'tis well!
For we have more to act and tell.
'Tis hard to choose from all his plays,
From all the motley he arrays,
What's best to show in clearest light
His wisdom and his genius bright.
The tragic Will, the witty too,
The sweet, sweet Will we shew'd to you.
We now present, without ado,
Petruchio wondering how to woo
The buxom, lucksome, fucksome shrew!
