Spoilers: Jack Juggler (Prologue)

Welcome to this spoilery introduction to the play Jack Juggler by Someone. We present a run down of the action, with commentary and clips, followed by a plain text recording of material in the edit for the final full cast audio adaptation (coming soon!)

Today it's the Prologue performed by Rob Myson - which is a fun start to the play, setting out what it is - and the host is Robert Crighton.

BE WARNED - If you just want to listen to the play as a play, don't listen to the spoilers episodes. Come back later, or don't listen. However, if you find early drama hard to follow, then you will get a good grounding in the action here - especially as we may make changes or cuts for our final version!  The plain text version is rough in hew, it will change and we produce it in part to hunt out errors.

You can follow the text online - though some texts are better than others. Good editions of the play can also be found - not always in print, but still in circulation - and are worth the hunt.

An online version - with some variations in text - can be found at project Gutenberg here. Other online versions can be searched for.

Editions: Four Tudor Comedies - Penguin (1984), Three Tudor Classical Interludes - Tudor Interludes Series, D.S. Brewer (1982)
