- Publish Date: 1982-10-25

- Author: Libby Appel;Professor Michael Flachmann PhD
Performed successfully during the California Shakespearean Festival in Visalia, this play woven from Shakespearean scenes, songs, and sonnetspresents Shakespeares universal, enduring, fully human values about love in a rich Shakespearean tapestry of romance, state the authors, Libby Appel and Michael Flachmann.
The play is organized into two acts containing four dramatic sections Discovering Love, Seeking Advice about Love, Having Problems with Love, and Finding Solutions to Loves Problems. To the right of each page of text is a clear, understandable glossary defining difficult words; at the bottom of these pages occasional longer notes explicate obscure or difficult references; each facing left-hand page contains stage directions. This creates a theatrical prompt-book format, leaving plenty of blank space for recording notes, ideas, and stage directions.
