Actor Stabs Himself In Brattle Hall Battle


"Draw, you rogue, or I'll so carbonado your shanks, draw you raseal . . .," Peter Temple '49, Brattle Hall's Kent in the current production of King Lear, shouted Thursday night.

Temple pulled his sword from its seabbard, but instead of attacking Oswald, he stabbed himself in the leg, cutting an artery and causing blood to spurt onto the Brattle stage.

Oswald replied, "Help, ho, murder, murder," but it wasn't even suicide. Temple finished the performance after a quick patch from a doctor in the audience and then went to the hospital for six stitches.

The limping actor took his wound like a trouper, and last night the show went on with Temple still on his foot.
