Were I to host a living-room reading of Midsummer Night's Dream as part of my birthday-weekend festivities, who would you be interested in playing?

I'm Puck, of course, because it is my birthday and I said so. Elayna is Hermia; feste_sylvain is Bottom. (We need to do Twelfth Night sometime so feste_sylvain can be Feste.)

You?

The theme of the birthday weekend, btw, has been decided; as I shall once again be square, I declare it hip to be square. Shakespeare. Geek film festival (because the teenagers have never seen Real Genius. Weird Al. Yes.

EDIT: I would not be opposed to us *also* doing Twelfth Night. :) If there's time and inclination.

So... damn... tempting...

(I've already been in two performances of Midsummer, one as Oberon, and one as both Oberon and Theseus. Damn, but that's a fun play to do...)

Nick Bottom!
Choose me! Choose me!

Or Snout! I could play Snout. "I, Snout, to represent, a WALL!"

Me! I want to play! Me!

Well.

I guess not this time.

Happy Birthday anyway.

(sigh)

Hee! Mark called dibs on Bottom right quick. But! Snout!

I wish you could be there! We'll have to have Party #2 at Wiscon.

If I were local, I would certainly participate!

Mmm, I wouldn't want to read, but I'd definitely want to spectate :) Also, it is appalling that the teens have not seen Real Genius. Good on ya for rectifying that.

Spectators welcome!

Ooh, this could lure me up, especially if I get to be Titania! I remember how much fun it was reading the Honey Bunny and Pumpkin Pie Shakespeare Pulp Fiction with feste_sylvain.

No one's called dibs on Titania yet... *tempt* *tempt*

I have no idea, but I would love to participate.

You can play the faeries Peaseblossom, Cobweb, Mote, and Mustardseed!!!

Or Hermia has some GREAT LINES! Well, so does Helena. They're both kind of GOOFS!

"You know, um, something strange happened to me this morning..."

"Was it a dream where you see yourself standing in sort of sun-god robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?"

"No..."

"Why am I the only one who has that dream?"

And also: A girl's gotta have her standards!
10th-Feb-2010 08:23 pm (UTC)
I'm soooo in! No idea who as, though; I'm open to suggestions.
10th-Feb-2010 08:25 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, please definitely yes :) I don't know which part, but yes absolutely yes!
10th-Feb-2010 08:37 pm (UTC)
One day I would like to move near you just so I could participate in nights like this. L'sigh.
10th-Feb-2010 09:12 pm (UTC)
Clearly what really needs to happen is to have a performance of Real Genius
10th-Feb-2010 09:34 pm (UTC)

This is going to be epic.

HIPPOLYTA, for preference, but given the number of comments I imagine they're all claimed by now.

Or else WALL. :)
12th-Feb-2010 04:04 am (UTC)
Hippolyta's still available! Or, well, not anymore, because you're her. :)
13th-Feb-2010 05:47 am (UTC)
I will play anyone at all, if there is a way I can get into your house!
