Surviving the weekend with my cranky right-wing grandparents.

My elderly grandparents live 45 minutes south of Orlando. My husband and I are visiting them next weekend. What do we do while we're there to minimize drama and maybe have a bit of fun? [more inside]

Playing with fire? No, plays about fire!

Sort of a two-part question, though answering the first part will help me answer the second. First, does anyone know of a (preferably online) way to search for plays by topic or subject matter? Searching for title keywords is sometimes useful but not ideal, and I haven't been able to make the search functions at the major playhouses' websites play nicely either. Second, in particular, I'm looking for plays about, referencing, or otherwise related to fire, smoke, etc. Any thoughts on either? [more inside]

Looking for movies with stock comic characters!

I'm directing a farce with a bunch of high-schoolers, and would love to give them some movie suggestions to look at for characters. They are pretty classic comic archetypes, but my brain is reeling a bit trying to think of all of them, and though I'd put it out to the hive mind. The only catch is that I can't really suggest any R-Rated movies, because most of them aren't old enough to watch them... [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.)

Any recent works on Elizabethan revenge tragedy?

ElizabethanDramaFilter. I'm considering doing a PhD (because apparently I'm a masochist who doesn't have quite enough student loan debt yet), and my area of emphasis is Elizabethan/Jacobean revenge tragedies. I'm trying to find a book on the comprehensive history of the form, but the most recent one I've been able to find is Fredson Bowers' Elizabethan Revenge Tragedy, 1587-1642 from around 1940. Does anyone know of something similar that was written in the last fifteen years or so?

Unperformable plays?

What well-known (or lesser-known) plays are written intentionally so as to be unperformable -- only readable as scripts? I'm thinking stage directions along the lines of pulls out a handgun and fires at random into the audience, or that instruct the actors to walk on the ceiling, or specification in the dramatis personae that goats are to be cast in speaking parts. Who's employed this device to the greatest artistic effect?
