Subject:        Shakespeare as Character

Shakespeare also appears as a character in David Williamson's soul-geldingly
tedious play "Dead White Males', produced in Sydney, Australia in 1995. Its
symbolism's elephantine quality can be judged from the opening, in which  a
university lecturer in 'literary theory' pulls a pistol and shoots the Bard.
The author is said to be Australia's finest playwright.

I would suggest staying at a place called Grosvenor House.  It is centrally
located, quite reasonable in price, and is very nice. Unfortunately, I have
neither phone number nor exact price available at the moment.
