Cuts for Act 1, Scene 1

Rules for cuts:
If possible, we will provide the entire speech that contains the cuts.  If a
cut goes across speeches, we will provide enough before and after to show
how it fits in context.  We will provide the page number and the line # where
we start the current speech (not the line where the cuts begin).  If a speech contains
several cuts, we will indicate them in the same section and not one at a time.  If
a whole section of the scene contains suts, we will not break it up, but keep
the section intact and indicate cuts throughout the section.

Cuts are preceded by a '[' and end with a ']'.  If multiple speeches are cut, each
speech will be bracketed separately.

Page 7 - after line 75


Humbly complaining to Her Deity
Got my Lord Chamberlain his liberty.
[I'll tell you what; I think it is our way,
If we will keep in favour with the king,
To be her men and wear her livery:
The jealous o'erworn widow and herself,
Since that our brother dubb'd them gentlewomen.
Are mighty gossips in this monarchy.]

Page 9  - after line 105 (Top of page)


We are the queen's abjects, and must obey.
Brother, farewell. I will unto the king;
[And whatsoever you will employ me in,
Were it to call King Edward's widow sister,
I will perform it to enfranchise you. ]
Meantime, this deep disgrace in brotherhood
Touches me deeper than you can imagine.

Page 9  - after line 116


Go, tread the path that thou shalt ne'er return.
Simple, plain Clarence! I do love thee so,
That I will shortly send thy soul to heaven,
[If heaven will take the present at our hands. ]
But who comes here? the new-deliver'd Hastings?
Page 10  - after line 143


Go you before, and I will follow you.
He cannot live, I hope, and must not die
Till George be pack'd with post-horse up to heaven.
[I'll in, to urge his hatred more to Clarence,
With lies well steel'd with weighty arguments; ]
And, if I fail not in my deep intent,
Clarence hath not another day to live.
Which done, God take King Edward to his mercy,
And leave the world for me to bustle in!
For then I'll marry Warwick's youngest daughter.
What though I kill'd her husband and her father?
The readiest way to make the wench amends
Is to become her husband and her father.
[The which will I; not all so much for love
As for another secret close intent,
By marrying her which I must reach unto.]
But yet I run before my horse to market.
Clarence still breathes; Edward still lives and reigns;
When they are gone, then must I count my gains.
