To ease the anguish of a torturing hour?

Call Philostrate.

PHILOSTRATE

Here, mighty Theseus.

THESEUS

Say, what abridgement have you for this evening?

What masque? what music? How shall we beguile

The lazy time, if not with some delight?

PHILOSTRATE

There is a brief how many sports are ripe:

Make choice of which your highness will see first.

Giving a paper

THESEUS

[Reads] ‘The battle with the Centaurs, to be sung

By an Athenian eunuch to the harp.’

We’ll none of that: that have I told my love,

In glory of my kinsman Hercules.

Reads

‘The riot of the tipsy Bacchanals,

Tearing the Thracian singer in their rage.’

That is an old device; and it was play’d

When I from Thebes came last a conqueror.

Reads

‘The thrice three Muses mourning for the death

Of Learning, late deceased in beggary.’

That is some satire, keen and critical,

Not sorting with a nuptial ceremony.

Reads

‘A tedious brief scene of young Pyramus

And his love Thisbe; very tragical mirth.’
