Comment:        Re: SHK 12.2439 Re: The Royal Shakespeare Theatre

I have a mundane question.  Putting aside any plans for future building,
I'd like to know: if I turn up in Stratford in August 2002, how many
plays will I be able to see?  In August 2001 I saw six in six days (and
could have seen one or two more if I had been willing to squeeze in two
in one day), but my sense is that hereafter I will only be able to see
two in any given period (one in the RST, one in the Swan)--TOP will no
longer be functioning as a theatre.  Does anyone have information as to
what future seasons will look like?

In the summer if 1996, a gaggle of lady English teachers found out that
if you sat up front, you could see up Ulysses' skirt. They saw the show
several times.

I attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art this summer.  While there I
visited the Globe, and saw 8 different productions.  Lear was the best.
I left before Titus opened.  Did anyone see it?

M Yawney and Brian Willis have my sympathy in remarking upon Mr Noble's
flowery (there's a joke there) language. My liberal use of quotation
marks was to avoid having it thought of as mine! He did give some
indication of terminology in his letter  - to which I cannot refer
because I've lost it - but his article in the RSC Magazine is less
expansive.

Drop him an e-mail and ask him. Or perhaps another RSC member who has
retained the letter would be kind enough to quote from it.

Yours Aye,
Graham Hall
