The actor playing the King, admitting that he has lost all his power now that the play is over, asks the audience to gratify the players with applause. (6 lines)
The king’s a beggar, now the play is done;
All is well ended, if this suit be won,
That you express content; which we will pay,
With strife to please you, day exceeding day.
Ours be your patience then, and yours our parts;
Your gentle hands lend us, and take our hearts.
