Subject: Quizzing Glass
I have encountered a term - quizzing glass- in a directing textbook. The text
by Stuart Vaughn states that actors performing roles in Shakespeare's plays,
should be able to handle, among other things, a quizzing glass. I cannot find
any source that defines a quizzing glass. Is there a SHAKSPERian out there who
can enlighten this South Texan on what in tarnation a quizzing glass may be? It
has me and my colleagues plum hornswaggled! Gracias para sus ayudas.
