A reading of an edited version of Gentleness and Nobility by John Heywood and John Rastell, performed before a live audience in 2018.

A Knight overhears a Merchant boasting of his nobleness, sparking an argument between the two as to what is a gentleman. They are further interrupted by a Ploughman, whose debating style is a little more… violent.
