Subject:        Study leave request
 
I am an Australian academic (Renaissance and contemporary Australian drama;
dramaturgy) and theatre practitioner (designer - Sydney productions of A LITTLE
NIGHT MUSIC, SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION, SHADOWLANDS, BURN THIS, THE NORMAL
HEART, BILOXI BLUES, I'M NOT RAPPAPORT, INTO THE WOODS etc; director -
experimental company established eight years pursuing the dramaturgy of
Renaissance texts under "Elizabethan working conditions") travelling on study
leave during the latter half of 1995.
 
I would be grateful for any generosity extended to me, in terms of invitations
to visit your university or theatre company to observe the role and process of
dramatury (especially in plays from the Renaissance) undertaken by your
organisation specifically.
 
In return I would be more that willing to give lectures/seminars on any facet
of Australian Drama and Theatre, workshops in design or the role of dramaturg
in this country etc etc! (without fee of course!)
 
My proposed itinerary is as follows:
 
Week beginning
July 17         Los Angeles
July 24         Harisonburg, Virginia
Aug 7           Chicago
Aug 21          Tempe, Arizona
Aug 28          New York
Sept 11         Rome
Oct 16          Paris
Oct 30          Munich/Berlin
Nov 13          London
 
Thank you in anticipation
John Senczuk

Subject:        ACTER's future assured
 
ACTER (A Center for Theatre, Education & Research), based at UNC-CH and
currently directed by Alan C. Dessen, is pleased to announce that we have
finally resolved our visa problems with the USIA and ACTER's future tours are
assured. We are still looking for schools interested in a Spring 1996 week-long
teaching/performing residency by 5 talented British actors with experience at
the RSC and National Theatres as well as TV and radio. The Spring 1996 play is
Macbeth and we have some late January-February dates open as well as March
4-10. ACTER will be at the SAA March 23-25 in Chicago; please stop by and say
hello! For information on tours, respond off list to

Subject:        Theatre Record
 
The recent query about performances last year of _A Winter's Tale_ and
Christine Mack Gordon's recent postings on _Hamlet_ have reminded me that I
have never seen a mention on the Conference of a resource that I find
invaluable: _Theatre Record_. For more than a dozen years a saint by the name
of Ian Herbert has been cutting out all the theatre reviews in all the London
newspapers and weeklies and publishing them in this biweekly journal, which was
originally called _London Theatre Review_. As the change of name suggests there
is now coverage of a great deal of theatrical activity outside London
(Stratford, the Edinburgh Festival etc.).
 
At US$240 per annum it's not cheap, but that gets you over 1500 pages of
theatre history. Here's the address: Ian Herbert, 4 Cross Deep Gardens,
Twickenham TW1 4QU, UK.
