  • Lord Dumaine – attending on the King
  • Princess of France
  • Lady Rosaline – attending on the Princess

  • Lady Katharine – attending on the Princess
  • Boyet – attending on the Princess
  • Marcadé – messenger

All played by 4 members of the Bremer Shakespeare Company in the ruins of the Landskron castle (built 1410, occupied by the Spaniards in 1620, the Swedes in 1631 and the French in 1689, the latter leaving it in its considerably munted state ) above Oppenheim.

Clear skies, not a breath of wind, 20°, a moon that looked like a slice of lemon.
