Here's a question I don't think we've ever covered before. Does Shakespeare ever play with anything other than a traditional, sequential timeline? In other words, is there ever a time when Scene 3 takes place chronologically before Scene 2? For example in a flashback, or a staged re-enactment of one of those many "Here let me tell you what happened offstage..." moments? I know that there are a good handful of instances of "Ok, now, flash forward a few years." But does he ever, for any reason, flash backward? Would an Elizabethan audience have even understood that concept?
The opening to Taming of the Shrew would be close to what I mean, if it started with grandparents Petruchio and Katherine being pestered by their grandchildren to tell the story of how they met. Know what I mean? It's certainly a standard form of storytelling these days, and I'm wondering whether it would have been completely alien to Shakespeare and his audience.
