Shakespeare's Classified Ads

Shakespearean Classified Ads. To respond, please compose a sonnet and fire an arrow towards the big castle on the hill.

WANTED: Players to catch the conscience of the King. I am an a prince and I’m currently looking for players to put on a production of self-written play. Must be willing to put up with a little bit of madness. Also, there is a chance that the play will be so powerful that it will result in spontaneous confession from all guilty parties who may be in attendance. This includes but is not limited to: The King, the Queen, and maybe that palace guard who I believe has been taking lunches out of the snack room when no one has been looking.

WANTED: Newly appointed King seeks paranormal investigator to help rid castle of ghosts and floating daggers. Newly appointed Queen is possibly possessed. We just don’t know yet. Please respond before the trees start moving and/or King is appointed by one who is not of woman born.

WANTED: King of the Fairies seeks rare flower to help undo a love spell gone awry. At first it was kind of funny, but now it’s just leading to confusion and his wife falling in love with a half man/half donkey. It really has been an interesting day. If anyone has any information regarding this unique flower, please respond as soon as possible.

ADVERTISEMENT: Cases of mistaken identity? Land disputes? Knaves plotting against the king? Graves need digging while discussing important politics? Are you an ass? Call the fools of the Shakespearean Fools Agency. Acting Foolish since ye olde days.

ADVERTISEMENT: No credit? Bad Credit? Good Credit? Too young? Too old? Need cash fast but don’t have a kingdom or a horse to lend against? Call Shylock’s Lending. Where a bad deal won’t actually cost you a pound of flesh.
