“Cry God for Harry, England and St George..!” Pit your wits against our Which William quiz in honour of Shakespeare & St George’s Day
We’re wishing you a happy St George’s Day & happy birthday to William Shakespeare with a Bard quiz from Guildford Shakespeare Company (GSC) who still have tickets for their live-streamed performance of Henry V this weekend.
Book in for HENRY V: live online, written by William Shakespeare & adapted & directed by Caroline Devlin from today until Sunday at various times. The cast brings together a collection of the company’s best-known actors including Paula James, Chris Porter, Emily Tucker, GCS founder Matt Pinches and Gavin Fowler. Matt tells us: “We are thrilled to have such a fabulous cast for this special retelling of Henry V, and Caroline’s inspiring 2014 production. This production, with the play’s own homage to theatre, will be a testament to the ingenuity and resilience of our industry, as well as a celebration of all that we love about the theatrical experience. The play also carries a unique message of hope that the impossible is possible, a sentiment that has never felt more poignant than in our recent times.”
Tickets are £20 – book at www.guildford-shakespeare-company.co.uk/Henry-5-online
As they celebrate their 15th birthday, the Guildford Shakespeare Company also kick off their return to the stage with the irresistible comedy She Stoops To Conquer, in the gardens of Guildford Castle, 17th June to 3rd July.
We have teamed up with GSC founder Matt to offer you the following Which William? quiz to test your knowledge against!
Willy Wonka, Will.I.Am or William Shakespeare..? You might find it harder than you expected to establish which famous William said the following lines…
1 Every man dies, but not every man truly lives
2 There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so
3 The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together
4 When our memories outweigh our dreams, we’ve grown old
5 Better three hours too soon than a minute late.
6 Only the good die young
7 Can you practice what you preach
Or would you turn the other cheek
8 Love sought, is good; but given unsought, is better
9 We know what we are, but know not what we may be
10 There’s no such thing as the unknown, only things temporarily hidden
