Monday Mystery

Welcome back from March break everyone!  As you can see we took a bit of an extended break but we’re back and we’re ready to leave you hanging with this week’s Monday Mystery!

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them.

Who will be the lucky one to guess which play this quote comes from?

Bonus point if you can quote the line that precedes this quote.  …and if you can tell me which object hopeful actors will normally hold while reciting these lines!

Happy guessing!

    Because of the line “sea of troubles” I am guessing The Tempest?

  2. Emma

    Easy, Hamlet!

    I’ve got it! I am pretty sure.

    It’s from Hamlet.

    The line before is his famous “To be or not to be, that is the question”.
