I find myself in two minds over this ... as someone lucky enough to have lived
within theatre-going distance of the RSC at Stratford and having seen some
memorable performances/performers there over the past 25/30 years I have never
been too bothered about who wrote the words - be it a local yocal or a courtly
knob, the event of attendance and 'being there' was more than enough. However
age and study in other subjects has made me aware that exactly who wrote the
words is important on some (different perhaps) levels - so yes ... it is
important that some do not just accept the obvious (?) and tag them all as
Will c/o Stratford.  It is difficult enough to prove the facts behind what
happened yesterday to ever assume that we know what happened 3/400 years ago.
 
BUT I would love to see a proof that Ian Hyslop helped Richard Ingrams write
them... hell! I was watching them almost before he was born! Come on William
Proctor Williams - show me.

For Lou Gamez, seeking reviews of 1987 Stratford (Ont.) *Othello* and London
*Coriolanus*: get in touch with June Schlueter, who is (I think) a member of
this SHAKSPER network, and who is also co-editor of *Shakespeare Bulletin*.
Hardly a production of ANYTHING Shakespearean is missed by that journal.
I'll bet you'll find at least one review of both plays there. Better yet,
subscribe! The *pony-express* (vs. e-mail) address is Department of English,
Lafayette College, Easton, PA 18042.
