We're taking it aaaaaalllllllll the way back to the 15th century to the start of the War of the Roses with 1 Henry VI 101 (aka the play with Joan of Arc and the guys who pluck the roses). The Rhetorical Device of the Week is apostrophe; the Burbage Break is all about Holinshed's Chronicles; we review the Plantagenet family tree to refresh your memory before the summary and our tips and tidbits include a little bit of authorship studies and practical production concerns. Jess plays Line Roulette and we go toe to toe in our first round of #DickBracket eliminations: Tambourlaine the Great vs. Iago and Measure for Measure's Angelo vs. Volpone.
