SpoilerShow
  • Who’s the brute described in this impassioned, genteel monologue from a 1947 play:
    SpoilerShow
    “He acts like an animal, has an animal's habits! Eats like one, moves like one, talks like one! There's even something--sub-human--something not quite to the stage of humanity yet! Yes, something--ape-like about him, like one of those pictures I've seen in--anthropological studies! Thousands and thousands of years have passed him right by, and there he is--_________ ________--survivor of the stone age! Bearing the raw meat home from the kill in the jungle! And you--you here--waiting for him!”

Her reaction stirs revenge lust in Yank, but, more important, it makes him think — about who he is and where he belongs.”
  • A crime involving a 17-year-old who blinded six horses in a small town near Suffolk inspired Peter Shaffer to write which 1973 play?
  • Who’s delivering these resentful lines in Shakespeare:
    SpoilerShow
    Should I not say,
    “Hath a dog money? Is it possible
    A cur can lend three thousand ducats?” Or
    Shall I bend low and in a bondman’s key
    With bated breath and whispering humbleness
    Say this: “Fair sir, you spet on me on Wednesday last;
    You spurned me such a day; another time
    You called me ’dog'—and for these courtesies
    I’ll lend you thus much moneys?”
  • Tennessee Williams wrote a number of plays with an animal in the title. Name one.

  • ‘Like a vulture', with ‘cruel nails’ and 'wolvish visage', ‘most serpent-like', with 'boarish fangs', 'tigers not daughters' – these epithets all describe which treacherous, scheming pair in Shakespeare?
  • Give me both words missing from the title of the play reviewed here:
    SpoilerShow
    “An exotic beast is stalking Broadway. No, I’m not referring specifically to the man-eating title character played by Robin Williams in “______ ______ at the Baghdad Zoo.” I’m talking about the play itself: Rajiv Joseph’s smart, savagely funny and visionary new work of American theater, whose presence on Broadway invites fanciful comparison to the titular beast. A Pulitzer Prize finalist last year, “________ ________” is like a majestic cat serenely striding through a litter of cute-as-can-be kittens ready for their YouTube close-ups.
  • Long-running murder mystery play that premiered on London’s West End in 1952
8. BEASTS OF PAGE AND SCREEN - Identify one of the following

  • In the novel 1984, what is “the worst thing in the world” waiting for Winston in Room 101
  • In the indie film, The Witch (2015), what kind of animal is Black Philipp?
  • What’s the name of Ellen Ripley’s cat in the Alien films
  • What’s the name of Hermione Granger’s cat in the Harry Potter book series
  • Say no to the Corleone family and you just might discover the severed head of what animal in your bed
  • Title arthropod in this dystopian indie (2015) starring Joaquin Phoenix about single people who are transformed into animals and banished to the woods if they don’t find a mate within 45 days
  • Title missing from this book cover
    SpoilerShow
    Image

  • Dog from The Simpson's, Family Guy, or The Brady Bunch

Will answers with "one or the other" choices, like "the dog from the Simpsons, Family Guy, or the Brady Bunch" be graded together, or separately?

Do the chemical symbols have to come from one of the animal names or can you mix and match letters from two animal names?

Absolutely, you can mix and match! Think of all those letters together as one big jumble, and then pick one or two
