Two Gentlemen of Lebowski

quote:
[They insert his head into the commode]

BLANCHE
What dreadful noise of waters in thine ears! Thou hast cooled thine head; think now upon drier matters.

WOO
Speak now on ducats else again we’ll thee duckest; whither the money, Lebowski?

THE KNAVE
Faith, it awaits down there someplace; prithee let me glimpse again.

WOO
What, thou rash egg! Thus will we drown thine exclamations.

[They again insert his head into the commode]

quote:
[He stains the rug]

THE KNAVE
Sir, prithee nay!

BLANCHE
Now thou seest what happens, Lebowski, when the agreements of honourable business stand compromised. If thou wouldst treat money as water, flowing as the gentle rain from heaven, why, then thou knowest water begets water; it will be a watery grave your rug, drowned in the weeping brook. Pray remember, Lebowski.

THE KNAVE
Thou err’st; no man calls me Lebowski. Yet thou art man; neither spirit damned nor wandering shadow, thou art solid flesh, man of woman born. Hear rightly, man!—for thou hast got the wrong man. I am the Knave, man; Knave in nature as in name.

You've got the look down, Strider. 20 more years and 30 more pounds, and I'd swear you were el Duderino himself.

hah, thanks Fitz. I let my hair grow out(including my beard) for a long time in preparation for that. I liked it, though I'm not a big fan of the goattee. I usually keep a full beard.

In other news, Two Gentlemen of Lebowski playing live in NYC, March-April! I'm so there.

You could go so many directions with it. I hope they don't go too Elizabethan in terms of set and costume, although it looks like the will if you can judge from the advert. There's nothing wrong with Elizabethan settings, but in my opinion it's overdone, especially since there are so many other periods that you can often evoke to better effect. Still, since this is itself a play on a movie set in the 90's, maybe the contrast to Elizabethan times will be effective. It would especially make The Two Gentlemen of Lebowski an interesting study in how modern storytelling either differs or parallels Shakespeare. I think it's quite clear when one reads, say, Sophocles, that the story is not modern. But with Shakespeare, there are a lot more elements that are still stock standard today- and there are a few that aren't, like mistaken gender (especially involving heterosexual characters), that often stick out as archaisms in modern theater and film.
