Subject:        Query: Scenes in Parliament

To All:

I am trying to find scenes from English plays through the Stuart period
which are set in parliament or some similarly _formal_ deliberative
body-specifically the Houses of Lords or Commons as opposed to the
informal "Council", though I am interested in representations of more or
less  equivalent institutions attributed to foreign nations.
(Shakespeare's Roman and Greek plays already noted.)

With gratitude for any help or helpful speculation on this subject,

Ira Abrams
