For the person who is tracking British productions of MND (I'd have replied
sooner, but the review I wrote has only just recently appeared):
 
One of the very best productions I have ever seen of MND was mounted last
autumn at the Royal Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh, directed by Kenny Ireland.
The staging, and in particular the set by Rae Smith and the mechanicals'
performance led by Andy Gray as Bottom, were nothing short of brilliant. My
enraptured and rather lengthy and detailed review apppears in the Winter
1994 (Vol. 12, no. 1) issue of *Shakespeare Bulletin*, pp.21-22.
 
Two post-scripts: anyone seeking America and elsewhere should always check *SB*
archives as a first move. It's fairly comprehensive in its coverage of
performances. Better yet, you should subscribe! Also, I know the original
inquiry regarding MND productions specified performances in England, not in the
rest of the UK, but this SCOTTISH production was better than anything I've seen
south of the border, ever. Point taken?
 
Cheers,
Naomi Liebler

Norman Holland thinks Hamlet is his greatest creation.  I'll bet if we did some
checking, we might find that he had a hand in other plays as well.
