When quoting someone who is referring to a fictional character in a play, you don't put the name of the character in italics or single quotes do you? Please advise. Mary

    I use the inverted commas (single quotes) on well, quotes. But names...hmm. I'm not quite sure. What's your sentence?

    If the quote is something like: Please don't blow your horn Horatio. It would be: "Please don't blow your horn Horatio." No single quotes, no italics.

    I am quoting my Artistic Director, and she is referring to the character of Tom, in The Glass Menagerie inside the quote, I just write Tom, no single quote or italics, right?
