Dear Sarah Elizabeth Richardson--
 
Thank you for your lengthy informative and enjoyable recounting of your staging
of the last scene of TGV--I've only seen the play once and a couple of years
ago--and they didn't play the end with nearly as much insight as you seem to
brign to it (though you make me want to SEE your version--can I procure a video
tape?)--But, I'm curious about why you'd have BOTH women not give their
consent---I don't quite understand the logic. Is it because of Valentine's too
guick forgiveness of Proteus? The way you describe your ending reminds me of
the way I've seen 12N ended with the FOOL and VIOLA walking off sadly after
everyone else as left) and I'm curious how it workd for this play---a play in
which the "problem ending" is definitely more muted but nonetheless there as
you show. Again, thanks, Chris Stroffolino
