Two poncey-looking geezers created by a Stratford playwright called Shakespeare.
In one of his plays these two geezers are asked by Derek Jacobi with a speech impediment to spy on and murder a bloke he doesn’t like. Probably because the poor sod was named after a cheap 1960′s cigar.
Anyway, the bloke named after the cheap cigar finds out about Derek’s two downmarket spies and turns the table on them and has them killed.
He mentions them once more in the play but by that time they are dead and the actors playing them are in the pub next door.
The play was first performed in a large open-air fire hazard called ‘The Globe’. Whilst it sounds like a pub, it didn’t stop a few Shakespeare fans rebuilding it for our generation to enjoy.
Fortunately for us, ‘The Globe’ now has fire extinguishers, a heat-sensitive sprinkler system and an automatic phone link with the nearest fire station.
Obviously things that Andrew Lloyd Shakespeare forgot to install in his ruff-wearing deathtrap the first time around.
