Shakespere is not all about Iambic Pentameter

Cliff wants a BBQ at dinner. His father, Cockroach, and 2 professors join them. Professor Lawrence (Christopher Plummer) reads a play, written by Rudy. Dr. Foster (Roscoe Lee Browne), Russell, and Dr. Lawrence all demonstrate their Shakespeare experience reciting passages to Theo, and Cockroach, as they are not into Shakespeare; but, must read it as it is their homework.
