                                1995
                        TUDOR HALL CONFERENCE
                       "THE DISCOVERED COUNTRY"
              America and the Classical Acting Tradition
                       Saturday, June 10, 1995
 
*The Preservation for Tudor Hall* presents a conference that seeks to examine
the nature of Shakesperean acting and production as rendered through an
uniquely American prism.  Tudor Hall, in Maryland, was the |homestead of the
most influential American classical acting company, the Booths.  Junius Brutus
Booth, the English born Shakesperean actor settled here in 1822 and raised a
family that changed both the political and theatrical landscape of America
forever.  His sons, Junius, Jr., Edwin and John Wilkes toured America from
California mining towns to the Broadway stage.  As a result of such profound
impact in their performance of Shakesperean texts, Tudor Hall has become known
as Shakespeare's birthplace in America.
 
*The Discovered Country* symposium scholars will explore the Booths influence,
the traditions of Shakesperean performance as shaped by the western migration
in the 19th Century and its evolution to the productions of today.
 
*Guest Speakers*

        English at Brown University in Providence, RI.  TOPIC: *Willy in

Subject:        Character Index
 
I am revising, with my colleague Sidney Sondergard, the INDEX OF CHARACTERS IN
ENGLISH PRINTED DRAMA TO THE RESTORATION that William Bradford, Jr. (deceased)
and I published in 1975, adding the LATIN PLAYS and the LOST PLAYS (many of
which, of course, were not lost but simply were not printed).  Please contact
us if you have any contributions in the way of especially painful errors and
egregious misdeeds that you have uncovered in the first edition (1975)? If
there are any studies of characters/character types, we'd be pleased to hear
about those too.  Many thanks.
