A Midsummer Night's Dream (1935) Poster

Dewey Robinson: Snug - the Joiner



  • Quince, the Carpenter : Snug, the joiner; you, the lion's part: and, I hope, here is a play fitted.

    Snug - the Joiner : Have you the lion's part written? Pray you, if it be, give it me, for I am slow of study.

    Quince, the Carpenter : You may do it extempore, for it is nothing but roaring.

    Bottom : Let me play the lion too: I will roar, that I will do any man's heart good to hear me! I will roar and I will make the duke say 'Let him roar again! Let him roar again!'

    Quince, the Carpenter : If you should do it too terribly, you would fright the duchess and the ladies, that they would shriek; and that were enough to hang us all.

    Bottom : But I will aggravate my voice so that I will roar you as gently as any sucking dove. I will roar you an 'twere any nightingale!

    Quince, the Carpenter : You can play no part but Pyramus!

    Bottom : Pyramus!

    Quince, the Carpenter : For Pyramus is a sweet-faced man; a proper man, as one shall see in a summer's day; a most lovely gentleman-like man: therefore you must needs play Pyramus.

    Bottom : Well, I will undertake it.
