You know, a friend of mine got back a little while ago from India (he went
there to complete his dissertation on Indian theatre; i think he spent most
of the time in the eastern portion), and he wrote (and is attempting to get

He's trying to get it performed by Alaska Theatre of Youth, a community
theatre organisation around here up north.
Also, a good book on Lovelace is 'The Bride of Science' (on amazon:
I got it for my dad last year, and i think he liked it (i'm sure he'll
