SF Shakespeare's Henry V

K worked with a teen troupe this time and they all did an excellent job with Henry V.  She played 'Lord Shroop," a traitor to the English throne who is executed, then was reincarnated as "the French Constable," who had some fabulous lines reflecting the cockiness of the French soldiers and their shock at their defeat (this character's ultimate demise is implied, too.)

Poor kid was sick, though, and I could hear the croakiness in her throat as she spoke.  Went immediately to bed when she got home, which is unheard of.  I have the same thing she does and I wanted to do the same thing...
