Kill the Messenger
Conrad is a messenger in the plays of Shakespeare. In fact, owing to the recent spate of bad news and quick hangings, he is the only messenger left - and he wants to quit. Conrad must deliver ALL the messages...Messages for jealous Moors, meddling priests and untamed shrews, for tragic lovers and humpy Kings. And his job is always to say the truth (it is their policy) - Say no more than the truth, maintain the truth, for truth is truth, to the end of reck'ning. But now his simple truth is all abused, as sly insinuating Iago makes sound opinion sick, and truth suspected. Conrad must make truth appear where hid, and hope to hide the false where it seems true, and, hope that they don't - kill the messenger...
