Codpieces: Fatal Loins
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Codpieces are Shakespearean parodies, told in the form of prefaces and continuations Fatal Loins continues with the supposition that if Romeo and Juliet didnt die, what is in store for them 20 years later? The familiar characters are there but not necessarily as we remember them. Who says, 'Thy tonsure " that sweet circle past compare / Like a pink lotus in a sea of hair / Thy noble ankles and the very toes / That peep out of thy sandals in neat rows?'
