The play was very easy to understand. One of the characters was an entertainer that explained the play very well either through song or just talking to the audience. If you wanted to see this play and understand it you wouldn’t need to read a book on it because it was very well explained.
The play used some old English but not too much. There was a great mix of old English and sayings from today. At one point I heard them say BURNNNNN. Now clearly this is a phrase from today and not from the medieval times. Many times this type of humor caused the actors/actresses to have to wait so the audience could quiet down. When they showed the bad guys (Sir Malcom, Sheriff, Bishop, and Guards) the Bishop kept our interest with his very funny voice. In the play there were also life lessons. This play is so funny that every other line you would be laughing.
