Subject:        Hermit Dress

In the stage direction that opens 4.3 of Marston's *The Malcontent,* we
find this:

  Enter MALEVOE, and PIETRO disguised like an hermit.

Does anyone know what this disguise might look like?  Dessen and
Thompson's superb *Dictionary* has a helpful entry on disguises and
mentions this s.d., but does not go into detail about what might signal
that Pietro looks like a hermit.

Hesitating to ask because I had to write a dozen off-list thank you
notes last time,

Mike Jensen
