for Act II;

Act III;

Act IV;

Further descriptions of each picture are featured in the galleries. I know that some readers have been having difficulty scrolling through these, but for Jackie at least these were miraculously resolved this morning.

It would seem superfluous for me to add a review of the widely known and much analysed work of our greatest playwright.

This evening we all dined on piri-piri or lemon chicken according to taste; creamy mashed white and sweet potato; fried onions; and tender green beans, with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I drank more of the Nero d’Avola.
