Other roles are distributed badly. Dailleurs jai formally refused dassister rehearsals to ignore me as possible to adventure. Jirai just five or six rehearsals.
There will be beautiful scenery, I saw the models. Maybe do we will pick a success, which I would be happy to.You enter quau middle of February, I will be in Paris a month before you; because I intend to leave médan 10 January. My house will be covered. Dailleurs, in April, I intend to return here to give a good push. I am still very troubled by the idea of doing theater.
