Ay, very well, my lord.

The student who is playing this part in my current class is smaller than a lot of her classmates. She doesn’t stand out, really, not at first. But she knows these lines and says them loudly and clearly while the others are fucking around with curtains and their props, not knowing what they’re saying. I can’t tell whether she’s a remarkable student or just demonstrating the wisdom of giving kids smaller amounts of lines to learn. But no one would want to see a Hamlet with only Reynaldo, Osric, Francisco and the messenger. Or would they?
