The Ghost of Shakespeare, having been unemployed for a few hundred years has decided to start up a new theatre company of inexperienced actors. His thespians, a tank of goldfish, form the basis of his new company known as the Aquarium Players.
Joining the enterprise is Lance, a goldfish fancier and trainer. Lance, having demonstrated his remarkable abilities at hypnotising Alistair, the world’s brightest goldfish into remembering an entire encyclopaedia, has taken on the task of imprinting the complete works of the Bard into the minds of the goldfish cast.
When interviewed about his choice of goldfish as his performers, Shakespeare said, “I liketh a challenge.”
