Re: Play Suggestions

Bandicooting around in archive.org yielded the following 1923 plays. Dr Johnson -: https://archive.org/details/docjohnson00newtrich Cheers, Chris I like Crossings and Dr Johnson, and will offer them (unless someone else wants to).

Re: Play Suggestions

I'm thinking of offering the 1923 George Bernard Shaw play "Saint Joan" but I'm a bit worried about the number of characters in the play.

Lubin act 2

Moliere servants are usually fun to do as they appear to be stupid but are often shrewder than they seem. Although in the case of Lubin I think he may just be stupid.

May I claim Phidippus. Todd and I can be old men (or rather aged Athenians) together.

PS. I cannot see any lines for Phidippus in act 5.

Re: FULL[PLAY]George Dandin by Moliere - thw

I appreciate everyone's help, I am pretty excited and anxious to hear my exchanges with alanmapstone who... (by the way) was AMAZING as Scaramouche in Dr Faustus in a Farce. i enjoyed it and ( without flattery or offending anyone), he was secretly the star of that play. Thank you for the compliment...

This revolutionary calendar was quite something. Imagine we'd all be in Nivôse right now.
I think it is a shame we never adopted the revolutionary calendar. Names like Nivose, Brumaire and Thermidor are so poetic.

Actually, Alan, the very first public servants in Australia were all "old lags" (ie, emancipated English convicts) from the transportation fleets. There's not many countries in the world who put convicted forgers on their currency: http://www.traveller.com.au/francis-greenway-architect-and-the-conv...

Chris has suggested that the role of Gregory might suit me, so I will claim it. I cannot do an aussie accent so will have to pretend he is an English immigrant. There were a lot of them.
