Found via Shaking the Shakespeare Blues is this TV Viewer’s Guide To Shakespeare, where the plays are all wrapped up in one or two sentence fragments each. Some of the better ones:
HAMLET. Displeased by mother’s second marriage, prince becomes addicted to soliloquies. Origin of a Broadway malady. KING LEAR. Father gives heritage to children before his death and lives to regret it. What else? ANTONY and CLEOPATRA. Cleo meets snake and gets stung. She asped for it. THE WINTER’S TALE. Estranged wife returns disguised as statue. Reconciliation the hard way. JULIUS CAESAR. Marc Antony rises to power on borrowed ears. Eerie.
Did I mention how much I enjoy a good pun? 🙂
