18 JUNE 7-9pm Monthly meeting The speaker is Hilary Bracegirdle telling us about the painter Beryl Cook.   We have had a talk on Beryl years ago but since then Hilary has completed a lot of academic research on Beryl and her painting.   She is also very knowledgeable on the venues that Beryl painted, and can identify the very ordinary pubs and cafes in Plymouth.   Having been sneered at by the arts establishment Beryl is coming in from the cold.  There was recently a two page spread about her work in The Spectator advising of a new exhibition at the Studio Voltaire in London.

Hamlet saw a ghost, whose tale

Of lust and murder turned him pale

Ghost dissolved when dawn grew dewy...

[Question is - was Hamlet screwy?]


Hamlet loved Ophelia, who Turned him down when told to do

Shambles he who once was natty

[Question is - was Hamlet batty?]


Hamlet staged his father's  end

Guilty uncle ,s consort penned

Blamed for choosing sex, not suttee

[Question is - was Hamlet nutty?]


Hamlet killed his lady's pa

Sent to England, gone too far,

Copy book was getting potty

[Question is was - is Hamlet potty?]


Hamlet, back in Denmark, found

Poor Ophelia madly drowned

Wished he too pushed up the daisy

[Question is - was Hamlet crazy?]


Hamlet fenced with furious brother

Fatally they struck each other

Ma drank poison, went all droopy

[Question is - was is Hamlet loopy?]


Hamlet with envenomed sword

Finally slew his Uncle Claude,

Then gave up the ghost and cried

Now I can't be certified
