A colleague of mine (a poet, but not a Shakespearean) is looking for an
abridged script of Shakespeare's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM that he might use
for a production this summer at his vineyard (I'm not sure, but I think he
wants something that runs 60 to 90 minutes).  Please contact me directly if you
know of a playtext he might use.  Thank you.

Thanks, Luc, for the wonderful response. I got the three toads from Farmer and
Henley, and they give no source for the assertion that the crest of Paris
contained three toads (or frogs). Your research into the question casts heavy
doubt on their assertion!
 
Again, thanks, Bill
