http://opoyul.blogspot.com/2009/01/all-twittered-shakespeare-synopses.html This list is going around Twitter at a furious pace right now, so may have already seen it. But then I realized that not everybody’s on Twitter :). You know the Twitter drill? Get your point across in 140 characters. So somebody went ahead and summarized each play in 140 characters:
H: Mommy issues are just the beginning for a prince with a murdered father and new Uncle/Step-dad. Most everybody ends up dead. HV: Bad-ass Henry V kicks France’s butt with a rag-tag army, many long-bows, and excellent speeches. Henry then marries a French princess.
It’s not entirely a comedy show, most of them are pretty straight forward summaries. Of course, not wanting to devote characters to the titles, they are all abbreviated down to first letter and you have to figure out which one is which. Sounds like a different game.
