What might you, Or my dear majesty your Queen here, think If I had played the desk or table-book Or given my heart a winking, mute and dumb Or looked upon this love with idle sight?

What might you,
Or my dear majesty your Queen here, think
If I had played the desk or table-book
Or given my heart a winking, mute and dumb
Or looked upon this love with idle sight?

Tonight, the role of the desk will be played by Polonius. He will also double as the table-book. The actor who would normally portray the desk will be unable to perform the role due to a physical limitation. We hope he will be better soon. Meanwhile, we present to you our current desk (and table-book) Mr. Polonius!
(Enter Polonius, walking, upright, royal, serious. He crosses from the wings, to the center of the stage where he, with great seriousness, lowers himself, first to one knee, then to both, he then tips himself forward a bit, puts out his hands and reaches to the floor, with first one hand, then the next. Polonius is then settled on his hands and his knees, center stage. He waits. Quietly. With dedication. For someone to come out and write on him.)
