Subject: Request for Advice
The newly-created Atlantic Theatre Festival will shortly open its first season
in a new theatre that has been constructed in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. The new
theatre will have a small gift shop and the manager would like advice
concerning what books might best suit such an enterprise. Unfortunately, the
shelf space will be limited. This is a request, then, for suggestions. If you
could only stock a very few items, what would you choose, bearing in mind that
those attending the theatre performances will be a fairly diverse audience?
Anyone visiting Nova Scotia this summer may wish to consider a visit to
Wolfville. The Festival opens on June 16 with a production of TEMPEST, directed
by Michael Langham with Peter Donat as Prospero. Two other plays will also be
performed: Feydeau's FLEA IN HER EAR and Chekov's CHERRY ORCHARD.
