To all those in electronic list land:
 
The department of Theatre at The Ohio State University has just
announced its production of Beaumont and Fletcher's _The Knight
of the Burning Pestle_ for the Fall of 1992.  The director has
expressed an interest in an updated version of the play...
 
I would be interested in any and all information I can find in
preparation for this production, including specific pointers,
apprehensions, appreciations, etc.  I would like to hear about
triumphs and horrors of productions of this work.  Specifically I
am looking for updated versions of the text.  I have just sent a
letter of inquiry to the Stratford Festival which has had a
successful production of this play for several seasons.  Does
anyone know of archived versions of this text?  Does anyone have
an text version they can e-mail to me??
 
Please send any information directly to me.  If anyone else would
be interested in receiving copies of the info sent me on this
topic, drop me a line and I'll forward the materials.
 
THANKS!!!!  I appreciate any and all help I can get with this
project.
 
Sincerely,
 
Mark D. Winchester
