Algy, sections 7,8,9,10 & 11 are all PL OK :clap:

I really liked the difference you inhabited between Archbishop Cranmer in Henry VIII and King Henry in Henry IV .... nice job, very believable!

Phil, sections 16 and 17 are both PL OK!

Poor Grumio, even I was feeling sorry for him :(

Thanks, Nemo! I played Grumio several years back and got cuffed regularly. :cry:

Alan, what you read is ok, however in the text link you provided, this is just a small part of the listed monolouge of: "I have almost forgot the taste of fears" which is as follows (the part you read highlighted in bold):

Macbeth. I have almost forgot the taste of fears;
The time has been, my senses would have cool'd
To hear a night-shriek; and my fell of hair
Would at a dismal treatise rouse and stir
As life were in't: I have supp'd full with horrors;
Direness, familiar to my slaughterous thoughts
Cannot once start me.
[Re-enter SEYTON][
Wherefore was that cry?

Seyton. The queen, my lord, is dead.

Macbeth. She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.


I guess this is a question for Carolin ..... Carolin, are you ok with this just being part of the listed monolouge, or do you want the complete section read?

Glad you liked it. I did that one for a LAMDA exam a few years ago; it got me a Distinction, as I recall. So an old favourite! :)

Alan, is there a reason why you preferred to read only the last part of the monologue? Im thinking it would be nice to have the whole monologue but exceptions apply :)

The monologue as I read it has long been one of my favourite passages in all Shakespeare. I think it is a bleak and powerful speech that gives a certain nihilistic view of life and can stand on it's own without any other context. So I would much prefer to leave it as it is.

I could quote an alternative source text if that would help.
