More on the story mentioned by John Lawler in LL 16.2205, this time with audio.

A Canadian radio magazine article on the current (London) Globe production
of Troilus & Cressida includes interviews with the director (Giles Block)
and language consultant (David Crystal), including Crystal's reading of a
passage from the play in Modern English and his recreation of Original
Pronunciation (OP). Also of interest are audience responses to the use of OP.
