I Speak the Truth

Just had my first rehearsal as the Soothsayer in Antony and Cleopatra. What fun! I think my note for this part will be Darth Maul.

Not the ninja/light sabre stuff, obviously - I'm an Ancient Egyptian - but visually. Apparently I'll be wearing a cloak with a big hood and squiggly symbols. I get to glide around (I haven't worked that bit out yet) and make ominous predictions which all come true.

Come to think of it, do you know of a script or novel in which a prediction is made, and it doesn't come true? It's such an obvious device, it might be tempting to experiment with incorporating one which just fizzled out and came to nothing - or would that just be too disappointing?
