Shakespeare in the Toilet
The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 10.2000  Tuesday, 16 November 1999.

[Editor's Note: With this post, SHAKSPER reaches YK2 for the first time
in its history. Never in a single year of its ten-years have there been
as many separate digests as this. Believe it or not the postings below
were the very next in line in my mailbox. I did not pre-select the
subject to mark this occasion, but a smile came to my face when I
realized that SHK 10.2000 would be labeled Shakespeare in the Toilet.
Here's hoping that this digest does not cause the end of the world to
your hard drives, and thanks for the memorable years, Hardy]

A colleague in our Political Science department shared this news item
with me:

Shakespeare in the Toilet

LONDON (Reuters) - A British theater company is putting on a run of
plays in an old Victorian toilet. The Bog Standard Theatre Company spent
three years and $6,475 converting the facilities into a 12-seat venue
with a tiny stage in the western English town of Malvern.

``Shakespeare said all the world's a stage so I guess that includes
toilets,'' the troupe's Dennis Neale told the Sun tabloid.

``Ironically we don't have room for a loo the audience have to run
across the road to public ones.''

Cheers,
Nick Clary

UK Shakespeare troupe finds odd stage for the bard

LONDON, Nov 15 - A British theatre company is putting on a run of
Shakespeare's plays in an old Victorian toilet.

The Bog Standard Theatre Company spent three years and 4,000 pounds
($6,475) converting the facilities into a 12-seat venue with a tiny
stage in the western English town of Malvern.

"Shakespeare said all the world's a stage so I guess that includes
toilets," the troupe's Dennis Neale told the Sun tabloid.

"Ironically we don't have room for a loo -- the audience have to run
across the road to public ones."

Should we discuss what would be an appropriate repertoire?
