Hello, I have been desperately searching for an out-of-print play and
have come up empty so far.  Perhaps you can help me.

The play is called "A Dress Rehearsal of Hamlet". My grandmother
performed in this play as a teenager in Philadelphia, PA in the 1920s.
Unfortunately that is all I know about it. Except that it takes the
"play-within-a-play" theme of Hamlet to a new level (it's a play about a
dress rehearsal of the play within a play!) It was probably written
before 1928.

I definitely want to purchase this play no matter what the price. If
there is any way you could help me I would greatly appreciate it. Any
input you may have about where else I should look would also be
wonderful. Thank you very much. My contact information is below. I
appreciate your attention to this request.

Yours truly,
Mary M. Zimmerman
