At the end of November, our final 2009 reading, we aptly read The Winter's Tale, a slightly ridiculous story featuring an oracle, and time personified - a play as hilarious as we might expect to find a sheep-shearing festival these days. As usual, the end of the reading heralded a swift exit to the pub, thankfully not pursued by any bears.
As has become tradition, the December reading was postponed until mid-January, to account for holiday-makers and monopolise on New Years Resolutions. This time around it was Cymbeline, a tale of lost children, evil stepmothers, Italian stallions and everyone's favourite Welsh destination, Milford Haven. There was a great turn-out and plenty of laughs.
Our next reading, on Sunday 31st January 2010, will be The Tempest - sometimes considered Shakespeare's last play, or perhaps the last he wrote mostly on his own, it's not quite the end of the cycle for us.
