It began in the summer of 2009 with the following line:
Before we proceed any further, hear me speak.
– First Roman Citizen, Coriolanus
It ended with this one:
Let your indulgence set me free.
– Prospero, The Tempest
How perfect was that?
The Bard Brawl has, over the course of seven years, read aloud the entirety of William Shakespeare’s canon of plays. As co-captain of the Bard Brawl, I would like to just give a huge shout out of props to all brawlers who have come along for the ride.
Of course, we won’t end, and Mr. Nick MacMahon has already picked the next play. After toying with the possibility of reading Christopher Marlowe’s The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus, he chose a play you definitely did not see coming.
Until next week dear brawlers.
Let’s let Mr. Jean take us out for tonight.
