A few more random odds and ends:
 
(a) all of Marowitz's Shakespeares
 
(b) Ann-Marie MacDonald's wonderful play, *Goodnight Desdemona (Good
Morning Juliet)* Toronto: Coach House, 1990, which (I fondly hope) is about
to win the Governor General's Gold for drama.
 
(c) Mark Fortier, who is unfortunately unelectronic, as far as I know, did a
recent York University dissertation on contemporary adaptations, including
*Goodnight Desdemona* and also Rene Daniel Dubois' *Pericles*. Fortier has
plenty of info, I think, and is available at the English Department, Trent
University, Peterborough, Ontario.
 
(d) It's not published, as far as I know, but Peter Elliot Weiss created a
*Tamara*-like adaptation called *The Haunted House Hamlet* at Tamahnous
Theatre in Vancouver a couple of years ago, which he has described in some
detail in a fairly recent issue of *Canadian Theatre Review*.
