The best "sustained critique" of Weimann's argument is Hans Jurgen Diller's
*The Middle English Mystery Play:  A Study in Dramatic Speech and Form* trans.
Frances Wessels (Cambridge, 1992).  I don't remember if Diller addresses the
distinction between locus and platea in particular.  I too would be interested
to know of other sustained critiques of Weimann, par- ticularly the argument
that David Schalwyk mentions.  Please reply via the network, in case others are
interested.

Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0519  Re: Shakespeare's Parts;
 
Melissa Aaron asks about the parts Shakespeare played. Schoenbaum discusses the
evidence in <i>William Shakespeare: A Compact Life</i> and seems skeptical.
Shakespeare was supposed to have played Adam in <i>As You Like It</i> and
Hamlet's Ghost: "characters with one or both feet in the grave" (202).
Schoenbaum's skepticism nothwithstanding, Don Foster's research with SHAXICON
seems to support the idea that Shakespeare played the roles of old or older men
like Escalus, minor roles rather than major roles.

Our English bibliographer, Rosemary Franklin, advises writing or calling the
Research Library Group for information about the STC online. I came up with
the following addresses:

   and bl.ric@rgl.bitnet; and
the following telephone number: 800-537-7546.
 
I hope this information helps.
