Two showtimes, both alike in dignity
In Shakespeare’s Stratford, fresh born every scene.
Suggestions, captured during sung ditty,
Writ down on balls and thrown by townsfolk keen.
The first tale found old lord with good wife dead,
No sound rang out when ringers pulled the bell.
A bet his walnut heart would soon be wed
To bishop’s daughter ugly who talked well.
The second tale had woeful king on throne
His one son dead; two peddlers sought a staff
Whose magic, once unleashed by saucy crone,
New heir did find. And much did gathered laugh.
Mix Bard and improv players and it makes
A first class show. Go see Impromptu Shakes!
Impromptu Shakespeare will next perform as part of the Bristol Shakespeare Festival
