Performed successfully during the California Shakespearean Festival in Visalia, this play-- woven from Shakespearean scenes, songs, and sonnets--presents "Shakespeare's uni-versal, enduring, fully human values about love" in a "rich Shakespearean tapestry of romance," state the authors, Libby Appel and Michael Flachmann. The play is organized into two acts con-taining four dramatic sections "Discovering Love," "Seeking Advice about Love," "Hav-ing Problems with Love," and "Finding Solu-tions to Love's Problems." To the right of each page of text is a clear, understandable glossary defining difficult words; at the bot-tom of these pages occasional longer notes explicate obscure or difficult references; each facing left-hand page contains stage di-rections. This creates a theatrical prompt-book format, leaving plenty of blank space for recording notes, ideas, and stage directions.
