A husband-and-wife team who teach Shakespeare at Guild Hall have received a number of uncalled-for e-mails from a former student, according to an East Hampton Town police report.
Tristan and Morgan Vaughan run the Round Table Theater Company and Academy, which recently produced its first full Shakespearean production, “Macbeth,” with Morgan Vaughan in the lead role of Lady Macbeth and Mr. Vaughan directing. The couple have been conducting classes and seminars on the Bard at Guild Hall since last year.
Mr. Vaughan began receiving unwanted e-mails in December from a former student. The e-mails were “religious” in nature, he told police, and made no sense.
Last week, after she’d been e-mailing him for two months, the sender called Mr. Vaughan directly, prompting him to contact the police. He believes the woman may have bipolar disorder, he told police. When a town officer visited the woman at her house on Toilsome Lane in East Hampton, she told him someone had entered the house and “tampered with her Bible,” he reported.
Toilsome Lane is within the jurisdiction of the village police, who have promised to investigate the reported trespass. The woman has agreed to stop e-mailing and calling Mr. Vaughan.
