Having endured/enjoyed a Burns supper in Scotland, I heartily endorse the 
opportunity to consume top quality scotch now proposed in connection with 
William Shakespeare.  April 23 would be as good a time as any, I'm 
thinking.

I think it is an absolutely brilliant idea that Scotland should promote 
the idea of a Shakespeare Day in England.

Dr Who Meets Shakespeare

Comment: 	Re: SHK 17.0874 Dr Who Meets Shakespeare

What's the relationship between the Who series in UK and in the USA, where 
it appears on sci/fi channel?  I watched a "current" episode expecting the 
Shakespeare plot line, but Who seems to be in a different universe over 
here.

Who's Who, by the way?  Or Which?  A new one just morphed, apparently.

New Screenplay

Subject: 	New Screenplay

I am contemplating an idea for a screenplay with Shakespeare being 
transported to the modern day.  Sorry I can't reveal any more of the 
premise than that.  One of the themes involved revolves around the 
differences between the plain, ordinary, everyday Elizabethan language and 
the plain, ordinary, everyday language of today (in the US).

Do we know anything of the vernacular during Shakespeare's life?   If we 
recorded a conversation, what would it have been like?  How similar or 
different was it to the character's language in Shakespeare's plays?  Are 
the linguistic interactions between characters in his plays highly 
artificial or realistic?

And I'm delighted to say that Curt Tofteland will be here at Notre Dame 
for the 7 p.m. screening on Thursday, giving an intro and then a q-and-a 
session afterwards. All very welcome.

If SHAKSPERians cannot make one of the screenings, please buy/rent/steal 
(well, don't steal) the DVD - it is a very extraordinary documentary.

David Kathman's many contributions to the list over the years offer much 
information on this topic, and some, at least, of the responses offer 
additional info. Searching the archive through the website will take you 
to them.
