Description
This is part four of The Coarse Acting Show 2 (Further Plays for Coarse Actors). It is a rarely-performed masterpiece (from a suggestion by William Shakespeare) with battle scenes of which the Bard would have been proud. Everything which can go wrong does go wrong: sets collapse, actors fail to appear on stage, props fall to peices, but the Coarse cast carry on, firmly believing that the audience won't notice a thing. Contained in the volume The Coarse Acting Show 2 (Further Plays for Coarse Actors)

"The best thing about the evening is a breakneck pace...at which so much happens with such split-second timing there's too much for one pair of eyeballs to take in." - Larry Stark, The Theatre Mirror
