Subject: Re: Staged Reading of my new play, Spearshaker
I would like to announce through the SHAKSPER network that my new play,
entitled SPEARSHAKER, will be given a staged reading on Sunday, October 1, at
2:00 p.m., at the Middle East Cafe, 472 Massachusetts Ave., in Cambridge, Mass.
It is tentatively scheduled for its first full production this fall, at the new
Fire Dog Theatre, in Allston, Mass.
The play, a comedy, deals with the Shakespeare authorship question. It
presents a speculative but hopefully rational explanation for how and why
Shakespeare and the Earl of Oxford could have become involved.
I am not inviting discussion of the Authorship question here, as I know that
would be inappropriate. But if anyone woud like further information about the
play, or would like to be involved in or attend this reading, I welcome
