Monday Mystery

Hi Everyone!

We had a great weekend here at Shakespeare in Action. We would like to thank everyone who came to the National Shakespeare Youth Festival and made it such a wonderful day with their enthusiasm and exciting creations. In honour of those participants, here is a quotation containing a Shakespearean character’s thoughts on acting. Can you guess who it is?

suit the action to the word, the
 word to the action; with this special o’erstep not
 the modesty of nature: for any thing so overdone is 
from the purpose of playing, whose end, both at the 
first and now, was and is, to hold, as ’twere, the 
mirror up to nature; to show virtue her own feature,
 scorn her own image, and the very age and body of the time his form and pressure
