You’ve heard of The Globe, now here’s The Aquarium.
After many long, long hours of training, Lance (goldfish fancier, trainer and hypnotist) has finished his task of hypnotising Shakespeare’s new goldfish company into remembering the Bard’s complete works.
Below the ghost of Shakespeare attempts to rehearse a play.
For the Shakespeare-challenged humans amongst you the play references from left to right are: Richard III, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and Othello.

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.
Is he up to the task? Lance recently finished an advanced course in hypnosis – Hypnotism 102.
When interviewed about his choice of goldfish as his performers, Shakespeare said, “I liketh a challenge.”
The Ghost of Shakespeare comes out of retirement – “I liketh a challenge.”
We eagerly await the results of this daring experiment, so watch this space. I’ve added a few dots points to make the space a little more interesting.

George, my fish whisperer human companion, informs me that yet another “Shakespeare” play has emerged. “Double Falsehood” is its name.
Now, as Shakespeare’s ghost has revealed in The Wise Colin Show, Prithee the Rat was the Bard’s unrecognised muse/collaborator/co-author. Is this new play yet another example of where poor Prithee gets ripped off?
Take the vote! Make your voice heard. Justice to Prithee the Rat!
