re: Skinhead Hamlet
I am interested to see interest rekindling in this fugitive text, which I have
just reluctantly excluded from the 'Shakespeare: Adaptations' section of the
forthcoming revised *Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature*; interested,
too, to learn that it has been revived fairly recently. Students of the play's
stage history may be interested to learn that Dr. Nicola Watson, now of
Northwestern, was shortly after her arrival at Harvard in 1985 invited to a
supper party where, with the encouragement of Joseph Brodsky, Derek Walcott and
considerable quantities of wine, she was induced to give a one-woman reading of
the entire text.
