Subject:        Who plays Thersites in the BBC video?
 
This evening I read that Charles Gray played Thersites in the BBC production. I
don't have access to the video until I get to the library, but I'm fairly sure
that Thersites was played by an actor with only one name. Can anyone help me
with this puzzle?
 
Thanks.

Subject:        Recent productions of MND
 
I am intersted in receiving information from people who have seen recent
English productions of MND. I am especially interested in Lepage's 1992 MND at
the National; John Caird's RSC production 1990; and Declan Donnellan's Cheek by
Jowl production in 1985. My research is involved in uncoverring the
performance history of the play in England with specific interest in the
twentieth century. Any  anecdotal reports would be helpful.
 
Thanks,
Scott Crozier

I received a letter in the mail that really touched me.
 
The letter was written as follows:
 
I am participating in a request that a business card be sent to Craig Sherfold
at the address below. Seven year old Craig has a tumor and has a little time
left to live. Craig has turned in a wish to the Children's Make-A-Wish
Foundation and has expressed his desire to have an entry in  the Guiness
Book of World Records for the largest collection of business cards received by
an individual.
 
Please take time to send Craig one of your business cards and mail this request
to another twenty businesses of your choice. Surely, this wish is worth a few
minutes of your time. Only twenty names to fulfill a little boys dream.
 
Craig Sherfold
c/o Children's Make-A-Wish
3200 Perimeter Center, East
Atlanta, GA 30346
 
I thought I might take it to the next level and show them what the internet
was all about. Instead of me sending the letter to twenty businesses, I'll
post this letter on twenty listservs. Let's all see what we can do to make
sure that Craig reaches his goal. Please remember, time is of the essence.
