The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 21.0374 Thursday, 23 September 2010
Date: September 16, 2010 8:56:00 AM EDT
Subject: Actor Doublings
I had a somewhat odd request for the group. Does anybody know of any literature
on the topic of single Shakespearean actors that might have played multiple
roles within the same play?
Alternatively, are there any SHAKSPER participants with enough computer
programming experience to assist me in writing software that could possibly
figure out which roles in which plays were never on stage at the same time and,
therefore, could have been played by the same actor?
