Shakespeare in Love

by

Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard

 

Henslowe

Mr. Fennyman, let me explain about the theatre business. The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster. Believe me, to be closed by the plague is a bagatelle in the ups and downs of owning a theatre.

Fennyman

So what do we do?

Henslowe

Nothing. Strangely enough, it all turns out well.

Fennyman

How?

Henslowe

I don’t know. It’s a mystery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
