Some Christmas bits, including some Ben Jonson

First of our Christmas specials - a return to Old Christmas, a fragment we've already looked at with another room, and Christmas, His Masque by Ben Jonson - our first masque, and our first complete work by Jonson. Which is nice.
The Beyond Shakespeare Irregulars this episode were Eric Karoulla as Gluttony, New Year; Liza Graham as Riot, Gambol, Offer; Emma Kemp as Good Order, Carol, Cupid; Sarah Blake as Prayer, Venus.
The host was Robert Crighton.
