Subject: 16.0643 The Use of Rolls?
Comment:        Re: SHK 16.0643 The Use of Rolls?

John Briggs questions the universality of theatre rolls: "all companies,
at all times, for all plays, for all roles?  I think I was warning of
the dangers of extrapolation from limited data.  After all, and for
example, a number of players could have shared a 'literary' transcript!"

I'm willing to be schooled. How would a number of actors share a
"transcript"? And why would they share a "literary" transcript?  I take
it that a literary transcript was made as a presentation copy for an
influential person, not for theatre use.
