Pontac: Codpieces

Fatal Loins / Hamlet Part II / Prince Lear

Perry Pontac
 
This collection of plays from Perry Pontac includes:
           
Fatal Loins
The question answered by the play is directly posed in the prologue: ‘If Juliet and Romeo survive/Will their eternal passion stay alive?’

Hamlet Part II 
'To be or not to be?’ may be The Question, but it is not the only one.  Hamlet Part II , for example, answers a question about Hamlet that has plagued scholars, readers and play-goers for over four hundred years: ‘What happened next?’

Prince Lear
Prince Lear answers yet another question: ‘What happened just before the start of  King Lear, setting in motion the improbable events of Act I, scene 1?’

A fantastic collection of plays, giving Shakespeare a new twist! 

Review
