Hmmm...This seems to be a popular topic for contemporary playwrites this
year.  The South Coast Repertory Theatre in Orange County, California is
premiering Amy Freed's  "The Beard of Avon" on Friday, June 1.  From the
SCR press releases it sounds like Freed's and Dorian's plays are almost
interchangeable, except that she adds Francis Bacon and Elizabeth I to
the mix. Maybe Dorian is fronting for Freed and Freed for Dorian.
