Subject:        Anecdotes

When I was playing the assistant grave-digger in a scene-study workshop,
we used plaster skulls.  The grave-digger was required to pick them up
and throw them over his shoulder to Hamlet, who would catch them.  One
night Hamlet very obviously missed, and the skull hit the ground and
basically exploded; plaster powder covered the stage.  The audience
laughed for a solid minute.  Hamlet, being particularly quick, skipped
in his text to "that might have been a great buyer of land..." but then
changed it to something like "it is the fine of his fines.... to have
his fine pate shattered into fine dust".  Another minute of laugher
ensued.

JoAnna,

I too, hate flying, but mustered up enough courage to fly from Arizona
to Washington DC one summer, and believe me, it was worth it!  Fly to
England - it'll be the best thing you can do for yourself.  Good luck on
your trip!

Rosann
