Dear Perform Friends,
 
Poculi Ludique Societas is touring again! In these times of economic restraint,
we have still found it possible to mount a touring production in the PLS
tradition of Robin Hood and the Friar, which toured Canada and the United
States--even Great Britain--to great acclaim in the 1970's and 80's. Now PLS is
pleased to present a touring production of John Heywood's comedy John John.
 
John John, blustering but henpecked, is tricked by his wife Tyb into inviting
her lover, the priest, to...supper. While Sir John and Tyb gorge themselves on
pie, the frustrated John John must sit by the fire, trying to mend a hole in
his wife's...pail.
 
Running time of the show is apporximately 30 minutes, and it can be performed
in almost any setting, indoors or out. The complete cost is only $250 plus
travel expenses from Toronto and meals and accomodation for a cast and crew of
four. (And these don't have to cost a lot.)
 
John John is available now and through Winter '94-'95. To arrange a
performance, contact PLS by mail, by phone, (416) 978-5096 or by sending an
e-mail message to

  We look forward to renewing old
friendships as we again take PLS on the road in the great tradition of the
travelling companies of Tudor England.
 
Sincerely,
 
Jon Terry Wade
