I’m not doing Sad or Mad Ophelia, though; I’m doing recently-fished-out-of-the-creek Ophelia, and I need some advice. [more inside]

A play: Queen Elizabeth & Shakespeare & fart jokes. Ring any bells?

My friend's mom is trying to find a play that might be called "1601." Probably has as characters: Queen Elizabeth I, Sir Walter Raleigh, Shakespeare. She read it in the late 1960's, and it was full of many fart jokes, sexual allusions, etc. Was supposed to be set in Queen Elizabeth's drawing room... We're having no luck, turning to the hive mind.....

Shakespearefilter- Writing an invitation like the Bard

I want to invite a woman (via letter) I like out on a date to see a Shakespearean play later this month. I want it to read somewhat like the general language used in his writings, but also instantly understandable to someone not very familiar with his plays and/or language. If someone could point me to a resource to help out or if you're willing to rewrite it yourself, I'd be very thankful. [more inside]

Where can I find a book that breaks down Shakespeare plays by the characters in each scene?

ShakespeareFilter: I'm trying to find a book--or something similar to it--that a classmate loaned to me briefly a few months back. Briefly, it had all of Shakespeare's plays with charts showing which scenes each character appeared in and the total number of lines each had. My classmate can't remember the author or title, so I'm stuck throwing this vague question out to the general public. Does anyone know where I can find something along these lines?
