Hi All,

As some of you may be aware, I have a Librivox podcast to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's Death due to be posted this Saturday, but I need your help!

I am planning to feature recommended clips of past Librivox Shakespeare productions throughout my podcast, but I could do with some more suggestions.

How you can help

Do you have a favourite Librivox Shakespeare production that you've listened to? Or maybe one that you've been in?
Or do you just have a favourite scene from a Shakespeare play or a favourite monologue?

Please, post these below. If you have a particular preference for which version (as many LV Shakespeare's do have multiple versions of them) you can post a link to that one too, but don't worry about finding a timestamp to that particular scene or section of a scene, as I can sort that out :) Don't forget that they could include scene's from the various Shakespeare Dialogue's Collection or the 12 completed Shakespeare Monologue collections!

Thank you all,
All suggestions that wish to be featured need to be in ASAP, but definitely by 22nd April 2016 :)

Well, Esther and I are planning something (which should be done in the next day or two) about our Shakespeare-in-two-weeks etc, so you could do different clips from there. (Actually, we're going to talk about how it was fun playing the two Dromios and might even put in a clip, if that's alright.) :)

Aside from the actual Shakespeare works we also have quite a few projects based on them, e.g parodies, re-workings, "mash-ups" (for lack of a better word) etc. (sorry for not providing links, but it has only just occured to me). Maybe you could use those too, or you have something to say about them?

My favorite Shakespearean "mash-up" is the King and the Duke doing "Hamlet's soliloquy" in Chapter 21 of Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn -- (There are several LV versions of it).

To be, or not to be; that is the bare bodkin
That makes calamity of so long life;
For who would fardels bear, till Birnam Wood do come to Dunsinane,
But that the fear of something after death Murders the innocent sleep,
Great nature's second course,
And makes us rather sling the arrows of outrageous fortune
Than fly to others that we know not of.
There's the respect must give us pause:
Wake Duncan with thy knocking! I would thou couldst;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
The law's delay, and the quietus which his pangs might take.
In the dead waste and middle of the night, when churchyards yawn
In customary suits of solemn black,
But that the undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler returns,
Breathes forth contagion on the world,
And thus the native hue of resolution, like the poor cat i' the adage,
Is sicklied o'er with care.
And all the clouds that lowered o'er our housetops,
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.
'Tis a consummation devoutly to be wished.
But soft you, the fair Ophelia:
Ope not thy ponderous and marble jaws.
But get thee to a nunnery—go!
