The Word of the Week is…’Strike the vessels’, a celebratory phrase from Antony and Cleopatra, chosen in honour of the new season release. The Globe summer season 2014 can be seen here.

Word of the Week: Strike the vessels – [unclear meaning] tap the casks; fill the cups; clink the glasses; bang the drums.

‘It ripens towards it. Strike the vessels, ho?
Here is to Caesar!’

Antony and Cleopatra, II, vii
