Subject: Disasters in Performance of the Scottish Play
Does anyone have a good description of the injuries and other disasters
accompanying rehearsals and performances of The Scottish Play throughout
I know the superstition -- we all do -- but wonder about the incidents
leading to that superstition. Literary citations, or even personal
contemporary experiences, would be warmly appreciated.
