Monday Mystery

Today’s Monday Mystery is quite apt considering what’s happening at Shakespeare in Action this week. That’s a big clue! If you’re following, you should know that there are only two plays this quote could possibly be from, but which? And who said it and in which scene?

The night has been unruly. Where we lay,

Our chimneys were blown down, and, as they say,

Lamentings heard I’th’air, strange screams of death,

And prophesying with accents terrible

Of dire combustion and confused events

New hatched to th’woeful time: the obscure bird

Clamoured the livelong night. Some say the earth

Was feverous and did shake.

Happy searching, fellow Shakes!
