A rich man poor man, drunk man found.

A rich nobleman found drunk, passed out, drooling in front of the bar, unwilling to pay his debt to his hostess! How does that even happen? It doesn't or dose it?  Shakespeare's know to be a little sly and cunning in his undertaking of the truth; he knew that portraying it accurately may make him look like a rogue. Christopher, a bright young Master, or Lord, lying in a ditch disgracing his honor. How did Shakespeare address the issue of alcoholism amongst the aristocracy? Well we find that drunken character sitting watching the unfolding of a play within a play, a counterfeit copy, a replication and revision of the ideal illusion set to a permissible standard, set to help someone wake, re access themselves and rehabilitate.
