"I turned myself to face me, but I never caught a glimpse."

It's hard to know what your life is about while you're living it. It's kind of like trying to view your own butt in the mirror -- impossible, unless your ass is huge, in which case you have a whole different set of problems.

Shameless Plug, or Getting Medieval on Your Ass

This Wednesday, after a two-week blitzkrieg rehearsal process, the Folger Theatre opens "The Second Shepherd's Play." It's a wonderfully unique Christmas show that dates from at least the 1500s, making it one of the oldest known comedies in English.

It's been freshly adapted for the Folger by the fantastic director, Mary Hall Surface, and includes period music from the Folger Consort, in addition to singing, dancing, puppetry...and sheep.

The show also represents the long-awaited return to the stage of the lovely and uber-talented Holly Twyford.

I play Mak, a clueless but loveable villain, who gets involved with some unusual business involving said sheep (Hey, it's a family show!).

Favorite Line: "Ye shall get many a thwang."

The Folger has recently posted some interesting podcasts about the show and its history, which includes snippets from one of our early rehearsals (You can hear me in all, but mostly on no. 3.)

The show runs from Dec. 12-30, with matinees on Saturday and Sunday. There are no shows on Monday. For more on tickets, go here. You won't be disappointed.

If you come, please stop and say hi afterwards.

So endeth the shameless plug. Mickle thanks.
