Let’s play: Arthur is nearly blinded (A4S1, King John)

Let’s play A4S1 of King John, where (Prince) Arthur is saved from blinding by Hubert, by his innocence. I find this extract one of the more moving scenes of  the whole play:

Hubert and Arthur’s scripts are in Parts and Cue format.  The Executioner  is in Highlit Text so that player can also act as prompt for the scene. The scene should be played from the beginning of the scene, starting with Hubert’s line: “Heat me those irons hot….”
