Mark Rylance at the 2008 Tony Awards

It’s not Media Monday, but I love this acceptance speech from this year’s Tony’s (from last month), more than I have words to express. The actor is Mark Rylance. The words he speaks are a “prose poem” (and may I just say I HATE that term. Either it’s a poem, or it’s NOT) called Back Country, by Louis Jenkins.
