The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 13.1719 Monday, 29 July 2002

Subject: The Summer's Tale Moieties
Currently the Oxbridge Shakespeare summer season flows along in the
Fellows' gardens awash with Pimms No1 here in this sceptered isle.
Ticket prices (up on average 16% on last year) are the inverse ratio of
performance lengths and quality is as indeterminate as width. Company
size is leaner than most that toured in the plague years. Plots are
slashed, text mutilated and actors triple and quadruple those characters
Can any SHAKSPEReans offer a guide as to the point where a PLAY BY
SHAKESPEARE transmogrifies into a PLAY VAGUELY ASSOCIATED WITH ONE THAT
SHAKESPEARE WROTE as I have a marvellous disposition to visit HM's
Trading Standards Officer?
