To celebrate their third anniversary, the Funtom Toy Company has hired a theatre group to stage a play for poor children. However, the ship carrying the troupe has an accident, and with no other choice Ciel orders Sebastian to ensure that the play is a success. As the perfect butler, Sebastian decides that oneself should perform any given act of charity, so he rounds up those that he knows and the rehearsals begin. With a haphazard cast of Indian royalty who can’t stop eating curry, Chinese mafia receiving "pleasurable" massages and an outlandish shinigami crashing the party, Sebastian really has his work cut out for him this time, even if he is one hell of a butler.

Overall, the episode had its moments, but being a connoisseur of Shakespearian literature, I would have loved... read more
