I can MC and set this up.

EDIT: set up, but you need to find death date or add the warning message about no one from Canada or Europe which use death date for PD being able to read for it....

Thanks, Todd

Whew! That took a lot of digging, but I've found him!

Death date for Carl Webster Pierce, playwright born 1898, is August 16, 1962.

I've pasted clippings of my evidence on this doc: Carl Webster Pierce death date

I think I have edited the date and inserted the disclaimer properly?

OK, the MW is ready to move over to readers wanted.

Hey, Todd, can I have a 0 section added? I'd like to do something different with this play's DP. Sorry that I didn't realize that when I generated its template.
