able to travel from Oregon to Stratford-upon-Avon this spring and take
in a couple of RSC productions, including Twelfth Night and Thomas More.

the better part of the way between Stratford and Salisbury, and

feel terribly out of place in clean slacks and tidied-up walking shoes?
Secondly, has anyone any information on the casting for the RSC's TN and
Thomas More? Alas, I'm still in mourning for the fact that we've missed

days in London and the Globe/National Theatre...any theatre
