Set in the Town Square and a group of peasants are drinking outside an alehouse. Whilst the action takes place, set at the side of the stage we see inside the kings palace.

Peasant 1.
Who's he?

Peasant 2.
He is Mr. Parsnip the Town Crier. He tells everyone what's going on. It must be time for the news.

Mr. Parsnip.
Oh yez! Oh yez! Oh yez! Here is the 1547 news. The king is dead, long live the king.
