Honor and Shame-- One of Shakespeare's very best plays. This hilarious romp is both engaging and entertaining. Hero is engaged to marry Claudio, but Don John plots to make Hero look unfaithful. Claudio denounces Hero on the altar and storms out. Hero's father wishes for her death, but instead the presiding Friar intervenes, fakes Hero's death and with the help of the terribly inept local watch the truth is discovered. Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more, Men were deceivers ever, - One foot in sea and one on shore, To one thing constant never.
