Anonymous said: Please tell me which video are the two gifs in your "/tagged/specs" tag are from? I don't recall it being in the THB trailer and I am just dying to find it. XD
I believe that they’re taken from video clips that were used in/to promote the stage production of THB.
(I might be wrong, anyone who knows different, please get in touch!)
E here - hi! They’re from the original stage production, which featured occasional video interludes, a deeply befringed Fiona, and Scripps in glasses. Available to watch here.

I’m afraid that Hamlet was a radio project - audio only. Putting this out to our followers, any technical-minded folk have a copy?

Thank heavens for violent enthusiasm. He’s one of us, darlings; he’s a Shakespeare fanboy.
Hey everyone - sorry there was a snafu on the Pride and Prej downloads (eg if you’ve reblogged them already they might not work) - all my fault, hopefully fixed now!
