A few things to say about this thread:

(1) Beware Stage Directions as indicators of authorial presence / not.
For every critic saying that longer more informative ones are authorial
there is another saying they are a sign of memorial / actorly
intervention. From Greg to Taylor everyone's got their opinion. Dave
Kathman...I'd be interested to hear yours?

(2) As to authority I sympathise with Isaac Asimov. If I wanted to play
Hamlet I'd become an actor.

Best,
Marcus
