reading by ZOOM

All right! Just getting Peter back for a reading will be a treat! What I'd like to do is have a test group some time in the next few days. This will give those of us unused to Zoom a chance to try it out. I will send out an e-mail with a specific date and time for a test meeting, and we can give it ...

Re: Shakespeare

OK, in response to my last e-mail, there is clearly sufficient (although not unanimous) sentiment to postpone our reading in light of the uncertainties surrounding the coronavirus.
