Funny / King Lear

  • There was one version of the play where jelly eyes were used for the scene where Gloucester gets his eyes stabbed out, allowing them to appear to be ripped out of their sockets. But the actor doing the tearing just threw them behind him, not caring where they went... and the jelly eyes ended up sticking in the scenery, staring out at the audience!
  • The Fool, naturally, is a great source of these until he disappears from the action after the storm.
