There was a very funny & successful production at Stratford Ontario a
couple of years ago.  I believe that Sheldon Zitner, the Revels editor,
was an advisor.  George & Nell appeared in double knits & Marge Simpson
hairdo.  It was in the small theater and as I remember they arrived late
& with conspicuous kerfuffle.  It was embarrassing when they interrupted
the play until we found out they were part of the play (most of the
audience didn't know of course, and we few insiders pretended we didn't).
I could dig up the program & send you more details privately if you want,
but I think a lot of people on SHAKSPER must have seen it.

RSC staged a production of Pestle directed by Michael Bogdanov at the Aldwych
in 1981.
