Ah, the Appeal of the Unappealing

Good article from Peter Marks in The Washington Post about reviving "lost" plays.

I used to thrill at the idea of someone taking a "forgotten" play, a work that has sat on dusty shelves for centuries, and giving it new life. To this day, however, I've yet to see the lost play that really, truly deserved to be found.

That day will come.
