Embedded text or transcriptWe suggest a fresh touch of modern realism - Falstaff biffed by a motorbike.
A laugh could be got by Falstaff withstanding the shock.
Othello's crude method of doing Desdemona in, might be improved
Let him take her pillion-riding at 60 m.p.h., and gently push her off.
As to Macbeth and his primitive daggers -
Why, he could easily run down victims with a two-seater, and say it was an accident!
Exit Duncan!
