Word of the Week: ‘Meed’ (n.) – reward, prize, recompense

‘If you do love my brother, hate not me.
I am his brother, and I love him well.
If you are hired for meed, go back again,
And I will send you to my brother Gloucester,
Who shall reward you better for my life
Than Edward will for tidings of my death.’
[Clarence to Murderers]
Richard III I.iv

Voiced by John Light

Behind The Voice:
John will be playing Oberon, “the king of the fairies”, in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which began rehearsals this week.

His favourite Shakespeare play is The Tempest, which opens our theatre season next week.
