Mytilene. A street before the brothel.
(First Gentleman of Mytilene; Second Gentleman of Mytilene)English
Two customers of the brothel have been so moved by Marina’s arguments against lechery that they resolve never to visit a brothel again and go to listen to nuns singing instead. (5 lines)
Enter two Gentlemen of Myteline. 1. GENT. MYT. 2. GENT. MYT.
Did you ever hear the like?
No, nor never shall do in such a place as this, she being once gone.
But to have divinity preach’d there! Did you ever dream of such a thing?
No, no. Come, I am for no more bawdy-houses. Shall ’s go hear the vestals sing?
I’ll do any thing now that is virtuous, but I am out of the road of rutting forever.
Exeunt. 1. GENT. MYT. 2. GENT. MYT.
