There are also a series of essays in the latest <italic>Shakespeare
Studies</italic> Volume XXV, and, of course, Donald Foster's book is
where it all began.  Brian Vickers claims that he has a book forthcoming
on the subject, <italic>Counterfeiting Shakespeare: The Politics of
Attribution</italic>; and there seems to be an ongoing debate in the
letters section of  [London] <italic>Times Literary Supplement</italic>.

Enjoy!

Subject: 9.0088  Q: MACBETH, Hecate
Comment:        Re: SHK 9.0088  Q: MACBETH, Hecate

While my summer '97 production of MACBETH probably isn't what you'd call
"major," I did include all of the Hecate material.  We played up the
drug-dependent world of the "wierd sisters" and Hecate seemed to be
their major supplier.  In the slightly wacked-out, post-apocalyptic
world in which we placed the show, she fit in beautifully.  If you
want/need more details, let me know.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:

The Shakespeare Society is a not-for-profit organization chartered in
New York State.  It is being formed for those who would enjoy exploring
and discussing the works of a man who is generally considered the
greatest of all writers in the English Language.

The Shakespeare Society's programs will be inventive and wide ranging in
seeking to explore the many facets of Shakespeare's influence on
American culture.  We will concentrate on current scholarship,
performace practices in film and theater, and interviews with
performers, directors, and scholars to enhance one's knowledge of the
works of Shakespeare.  If you love literature, drama and language, and
want to hold Shakespeare's mirror up to life today, you will enjoy a
membership in The Shakespeare Society.

It is our mandate to keep alive the language, the poetry and the drama
of Shakespeare and to view him as a contemporary writer whose work
speaks clearly and strongly to our time.

The Shakespeare Society offers its members the opportunity to play an
active role in making things happen within our programs and to meet with
diverse groups of fellow Shakespeareans.  This will be done by quarterly
meetings, an annual weekend symposium, a newsletter, and attendance at
Shakespeare performances.  These actives will be conducted by
Shakespeare scholars, performers and directors.

Because we realize the financial struggle for the proper training in the
classical Shakespeare tradition, we hope to establish an Actors Fund
within the Society's activities to help actors learn their art.
