If you can settle for a conference in Canterbury in the Summer, the
International Federation for Theatre Research will be meeting July 6 -
12. There will undoubtedly be some sessions related to Shakespeare.

The conference will include a day's excursion to London (including the
Globe) and probably a post-convention trip somewhere in the UK.

There is a link with contact information on my website.

Remember those

Your remark reminds of a favorite story of my old English professor (or
happy memory):  In the last century, a member of Parliament, one Thomas
Massey-Massey, called for the suppression of the term, "Christmas,"
because of its Roman Catholic background.  He favored "Christtide"
instead, and presented this idea before the assembled Members. The idea
died, however, when some wag of an Irish M.P. rose to say that he would
be perfectly willing to endorse the measure, if the English gentleman
would change his own name to Thotide Tidey-Tidey.

I agree -- I always call it a "double" ending.

I think you should have only imaginary minds in on creating the play. It
must be as imaginative as possible.
