Chapter 11, Page 6 Fairies?

Shakespearean, Victorian, or Modern, pick your flavor.

I honestly don't know now if that's what they meant when they said they were fairies. I have a sneaking suspicion that it's not.

Mary, however, has, like I did, jumped to the conclusion that they must be in a play. She's got Shakespeare on the brain right now, so it's kinda justified.

Speaking of which, I just picked up a 1999 adaptation of that play from the library. Hope they did a good job with it. Adaptations of Shakespeare plays seem to be highly variable in quality.

Oh, and Mary is on her way to her first driving class. That was probably about as clear as mud from the context.

Would that be the film adaptation with Kevin Kline? No bad, IIRC (it's been a long time since I saw that one), actually fairly faithful to the original with regard to basic story elements and plot, but it's been updated to sometime around the turn of the 20th century, I think. In any case Kline, as always, was excellent.

@Dan: As a matter of fact, yes, he is in this one. No idea who the man is, but I look forward to the performance.

Ah, cosplayers. They're everywhere these days, I swear.

@Robert: That is possible. I honestly don't know what they were about. And if I type much more I'm going sound like shadow of Shakespearean wit. Too much of the Bard's verse for me today.
