Doc,
Of course I would love to participate. With the acknowledged issues, I still 
like the 2 play format. It gives some of opportunity for small yet delicious 
parts. One of my favorites was Dennis in AYLI. 3 words. "Calls your worship?" I 
think I carried a frying pan and wore a bandana. My kind of part.
So count me in for a week in the country, much longer than Sondheim imagined in 
"A Weekend in the Country," from " A Little Night Music."

"With riotous laughter we quietly suffer
The season in town, which is reason enough for
A weekend in the country,
How amusing,
How delightfully droll.
A weekend in the country,
While we're losing
Our control.
A weekend in the country,
How enchanting,
On the manicured lawns.
A weekend in the country,
With the panting
And the yawns.
With the crickets and the pheasants
And the orchards and the hay,
With the servants and the peasants,
We'll be laying our plans while we're playing croquet
For a weekend in the country,
So inactive
That one has to lie down."
