What play features Freud's On Dreams?

I'm going through some boxes of old books I had in storage and came across this one, which isn't what it seems. I suspect it was created as a prop fro a play, but I can't think of a play I worked on, or have read that features this book. What play might have used this book prop?

How to rehearse a (radio) play

I've written a radio play, and I'm meeting the cast tomorrow for a rehearsal. This is the first play I've written (let alone a radio play) and I've never acted in anything either, so any hints and tips about how to run a rehearsal smoothly would be greatly appreciated, especially anything that relates especially to radio drama.

Gobble, gobble, gobble, we'll talk turkey to that sun.

I was in a school play when I was in the first grade, in 1976. I would love to know what the play was, so I can find it and read it again! [more inside]

spanish dialogue recommendations

Oh, the drama!! Recommend me diálogos en español, please. I'm interested in easy, two-person, not-so-long (~3 minutes out loud) non-risqué dialogues. Preferably, they were originally written in Spanish, and have some emotion in them. Realistically, I should be able to find them online, because I have no access to Spanish language books. (Spanish-language resources are ok to recommend; it needs to be easy for the person learning from me.)

Help me find a fifties font.

I need a few good fonts for various props in a 1956 play. Does anyone know of a list of several 1950's fonts? I need a sign, window lettering, and I'd like the program to have a fifties feel as well.
