Subject:        Second Maiden's Tragedy reading
 
I wanted to let anyone and everyone know who may be in the Dallas- Fort Worth
area next weekend that Stage West, a Fort Worth theatre co. will be presenting
a concert reading of "The Second Maiden's Tragedy" Sunday, May 1 at 7pm.
 
In an article appearing in this week's Dallas Observor, the reading coincides
with the publication of Charles Hamilton's book, SHAKESPEARE AND FLETCHER's
CARDENIO or THE SECOND MAIDEN'S TRAGEDY. Hamilton feels that SMT is one of "the
lost plays" based on manuscript evidence. Having read Eric Rasmussen's article
in SQ, the evidence points more towards WS making corrections and additions
rather than authoring text. In any case it will be a unique opportunity. Anyone
needing further details and directions should send a note to my e-mail.
 
Oh, there will also be a post-performance discussion. Since my SAA paper was
over SMT, you can be assured I'll be rather vocal. THose of you who I met last
week will have guessed that.
 
Hope some of y'all can be there.
 
Elizabeth Schmitt
