Comment:	Re: SHK 18.0818 Understudies

If actors retained their "parts," wouldn't "memorial reconstruction" be 
a rather easy task? Get the actors' parts, and have a scribe reconstruct 
the script. If only a few actors had their parts, then these "parts" 
should be memorially reconstructed almost perfectly, not just with 
greater fidelity. Of course, the parts extant are not always congruent 
with the script as a whole, as Palfrey and Stern point out. O, for an 
easy answer.
