Does anyone have information about the current state of the MIT/Stanford
project (under development by Peter Donaldson, Larry Friendlander, and Janet
Murray) that was demonstrated at the Atlanta SAA?

I`d like to know if anyone out there saw (or knows much about) the Terry
Hands' 1977 RSC production of Henry VI with Alan Howard as Henry.  It was
an unusual feat in that all 3 plays were performed relatively uncut and I`m
particularly interested in Alan Howard`s portrayal of Henry as a king who
became increasingly disillusioned, even cynical, as the plays progressed.
How consistent was Henry`s development in the production? -- Margaret
was played as one who had genuine, positive, feelings for Henry.  Did this
work?  Was there a positive feeling between them throughout?
 
I`ve already read a number of theatrical reviews and academic critiques on
the production, so it is mostly eyewitness accounts that interest me (if
anyone can remember that far back!)  But if anyone knows about any helpful
written accounts that I may have missed, I`d be happy to hear about them
too.
 
Thanks,
Louise Nichols
