I have experimented with small-cast versions (strictly in the planning
stages) and remain puzzled about how you can possibly manage with so few
as 4 or even 6 for the listed plays. Does this involve serious cutting
of the works to eliminate characters? How, for example, can you stage
the conclusion of AYLI without rewriting the play?

Not complaining here. Just baffled.

Cheers,
don
