G'day all
Apparently there is a stage play in french by a bloke called Benoit Giros 
based on IoN, which I reckon is a very clever idea.


Google is not my friend in this case, this is the only source I found. Does 
anybody know more about this project or the author ?

Bob, maybe you can pass these links on to your m8 in France, if this is the 
real thing there must be a transcript in french available ! And before 
Scarlatti rants again, in english too !
