Quandary Resolution 1837
nepotism, proscenium, dorsal, fossick
Everyone assumed the play's producer was Harry's uncle or godfather or even half-brother, because only shameless nepotism could have gotten him the role of the Tutor, fossicking all over the stage, looking for the golden location that would show off his noble brow to the best advantage, once ending up on the proscenium (another two steps and he would have toppled into the orchestra pit!), leaving the rest of the cast with the unflattering dorsal view of his over-the-hill and sagging person.
