Subject:        Lyly's Gallathea
 
Not strictly on the subject of Shakespeare, but close. I'm directing a
production of John Lyly's _Gallathea_ shortly, and would be interested in any
advice/comments/references anyone cares to cast in my direction. (We're doing
it as a joint production between Theatre Studies and a local boys school, with
(roughly sopeaking) boys playing the mortals, our students playing nymphs etc
and some older actors playing Neptune, Diana etc.) Reply direct to me or to the
list--whatever is appropriate. Incidentally, does anyone know of any recent
productions?
 
Thanks
Adrian Kiernander

Sara Bodi, Literary Analyst at the Long Wharf Theatre, asks  for suggested
books and articles that would be helpful for a production of AS YOU LIKE IT.
John Tillinger will be directing, sometime in the fall.  Please send replies
directly to

 .  Thanks for your help.
 
(I met Ms. Bodi at a session of a three-week-long conference of young
professional directors sponsored by the Theatre Communications Group at Lincoln
Center. This particular day was run by Mark Lamos.  Lamos showed the kinds of
things he looks at, and he was infinitely generous in bringing the young
colleagues into creative collaboration as he stepped through opening lines of
ROMEO AND JULIET.  The directors were charmed and charming;   no preening, no
cantankerousness, lots of modest exuberance and imaginative suggestions.  And
they easily acknowledged NEED for information and guidance from scholars about
text, social codes, traditions of production, . . . all the things we generally
find interesting.  Let's find ways to reach out to them through the ivy
curtains.)

Subject:        Question: How did Shakespear write to appeal to popular culture?
 
It is noticable that writer must write for the times in which they live. How
did Shakespeare do this for his time and why do we still read him?

We have determined that Shakespeare was a Catholic, but was this the only view
he showed concern with?  What other views did he use in writing his plays?

Subject:        Dissertations in Progress
 
I have a post-graduate student embarking on his Ph.D. thesis on an aspect of
the Henry VI plays.  While we are well aware of the means of finding out if any
previous work has been done on the topic, such as Dissertation Abstracts
International, I doubt that I know of ALL the means of learning of
dissertations which may be IN PROGRESS at this time.  (This is a constant
concern of Ph.D. students and their supervisors.)  I'm sure other members of
SHAKSPER as well as myself would appreciate feedback from anyone who knows
which journals, databases, etc., provide lists of Shakespeare theses in
progress.
 
Regards to all from a surprisingly cold Perth, Australia
