How to Diss like a Shakespearean Diva
The Donkey Show
Fri 24 Jun
TO CELEBRATE WHAT’S GOT TO BE THE SASSIEST ADAPTATION OF A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM EVER COMING TO PROUD, WE’RE THROWING SOME SHAKESPEAREAN ATTITUDE AROUND
The Donkey Show, a smash-hit disco rendition of Shakespeare’s comedy has landed at Proud. Full of divas, dancers and debauchery, this is the Bard like you’ve never seen it done before. It’s fun, frivolous and hilariously funny.
In his honour, we’ve rounded up some of the best sass to come from his 16th century quill.
- ‘Villain, I have done thy mother’ – Titus Andronicus
- ‘I do desire we may be better strangers’ – As You Like It
- ‘You have such a February face’ – Much Ado About Nothing
- ‘Thou cream-faced loon’ – Macbeth
- ‘I’ll beat thee, but I would infect my hands’ – Timon of Athens
- ‘I am sick when I do look on thee’ – A Midsummer Night’s Dream
- ‘Peace, ye fat guts’ – Henry IV, Part One
- ‘Away, you three inch fool’ – The Taming of the Shrew
- ‘You, minion, are too saucy’ – The Two Gentlemen of Verona
- ‘The rankest compound if villainous smell that ever offended they nostril’ – The Merry Wives of Windsor
Warning: these insults are sure to cause some serious burn. Beware unleashing them in everyday life.
The Donkey Show opened at Proud Galleries on 10 June and runs until 21 August. For more info and to go to the show, click here.
