Subject:        Pericles
 
Dear everyone,
 
With all of the word circulating about various productions, I thought I'd pass
on some info and use the opportunity to make an inquiry.
 
The Bell Shakespeare Company, Australia's only touring Elizabethan drama
troupe, have announced their schedule for next year; they are going to be
touring with productions of 'Twelfth Night' and 'Pericles'.
 
Now, it's been a while since I saw a performance of TN, but I have never seen
'Pericles', and I believe that it is one of those plays that has never much
been in fashion, and I'm curious to know about any recent or notable
productions.  If anyone is interested, I will post more information about the
production as it becomes available.
 
Ta

Is there any evidence for the age of Falstaff? I seem to recall that he was
once page to the Duke of Norfolk. Or am I wrong? I ask this because I just now
realized that both Don Quixote and Goethe's Faust were respecively pushing
fifty and somewhere in the mid fifties. And both of them are presented as if
they were tottering oldsters. ELEpstein
