You might also look at Edward Bond's _Lear_, and I think the _Othello_
you're referring to must by _Goodnight Desdemona (Goodmorning Juliet)_
by Ann Marie MacDonald.

What about *Goodnight Desdemona, Good Morning Juliet."  It's an interesting
sort of Jungian tale, in which an aging teaching assistant is sucked into a
vortex of Shakespeare plays.  A few of the jokes are only funny if you're
Canadian, but on the whole it's pretty good. The Neptune theatre, here in
Halifax, played it last season and the season before, but not this year.  I
have a copy if you need biblio information.
 
Sincerely,
        Sean Lawrence

Laurie White,  _Goodnight Desdemona, Goodmorning Juliet_ is a possibility.
I don't have publishing info but you may want to contact Neptune Theatre
(Halifax, NS CAN).  _Shakespeare's Women_ was performed at Dalhousie U
a few years ago, as well.

If you're interested in film, don't miss Kurosawa's _Throne of Blood_ and
_Ran_.  Two of the best Shakespeare movies ever made, even if they're not
Shakespeare.

A new play touring by the National Theatre was recently in Boston called
"The Madness of George III."  A lot of Lear and Cymbeline can be seen in
it.  Also, what about Stoppard's "A Dogg's Hamlet" and "Cahoot's Macbeth."
