Phoenix Giant, a division of Orion Books, Ltd.

Comment:        Re: SHK 11.1186 Re: Fathers & Mothers

The "practical theatricality" argument for the absence of mothers makes
perfect sense and is even handed to us by Shakespeare in Peter Quince's
"Pyramus and Thisbe"-notice how quickly the roles of Thisbe's mother and
father (1.2.50) are jettisoned when a Wall and Moonshine are needed.
