Subject:        Illumination

Having misplaced some notes and with the usual sources being unavailable
for a week or so, I would be in debt to anyone who can illuminate the
method of producing lightning on the Shakespearean stage. Citation is
preferred to speculation. Modern editors make light of the activity and
the other usual suspects rumble on about troughs, canon balls and
thunder machines but offer no flashes of  insight about the blitz.
Possibly such SDs (Macbeth , for example) were literary ones? Perhaps
the next issue of the text will be undertaken by an editor who will
allow us to see more clearly.   Ta.

Best wishes for 2002,
Graham Hall
