I know I've acted in several of his plays. Julius Caesar, Twelfth Night, Richard II... and I think I did a couple scenes from Romeo & Juliet at some point.

That episode of Doctor Who touched on Love's Labour's Won, and the Dark Lady who he wrote a sonnet for. ;)

"Several" to me means more than 3. If it was three, I'd say "a few." Etc.

I'm reading the Merchant of Venice. :p

I finished my other book... and I haven't been to the library yet. So I was inspired to read some plays I hadn't yet. :p

I still like Romeo and Juliet, lol... and my favorite comedy is The Tempest.

Merchant of Venice was a little blah.

From the Tom Baker Doctor Who serial "City of Death", written by none other than Douglas Adams:

(i'm writing from memory so it's not very accurate)

For context, we're in Paris, in the 70s.

Countess: "Hamlet, first draft."

Doctor: "But that's been missing for centuries!"

Countess: "I assure you it is genuine."

Doctor: "Ah yes, I recognise the handwriting."

Countess: "Shakespeares."

Doctor: "No, mine. Shakespeare sprained his wrist writing sonnets."

:lol:
