Subject:        The Tempest and Prospero
 
Greetings!
 
I am currently researching The Tempest for a project I am doing as a graduate
student at Utah State University.
 
Specifically, I am interested in talking about Prospero's age. Traditionally
the character is played with a long white beard indicating old age.  I am
interested in any productions which have played this character in a younger
vein.  I am thinking around 45 years of age.
 
Many scholars believe Shakespeare set Prospero's age as the same as his at the
time he wrote the play.
 
Anyone with any comments and information about this idea please write to Sallie

        Much appreciation,
        Sallie Cooper
 
P.S.:Has anyone seen any of SHakespeare's plays produced with mixed media? i.e.
specifically, video format of past scenes etc.  How effective did these
presentations seem to be?  Thanks,  Sallie

I hope I am sending this querry to the right place.  I feel as tentative as I
did in the back seat of my fathers '49 Plymouth.  I am an aged scholar writing
his dissertation on The Teaching of Shakespeare in Prison: or 'Lear he kicked
Cordelia to the curb; he buy his clothes at K-Mart."  I need to hear from
people on the list if they know of any others teaching Billy the Shake in an
incarcerated setting.  Am trying to show how Billy's work is a tremendous way
for the student-prisoner to remap their moral imperatives. Have taught in 13
Mass correctional facilities (nice word eh wot?) including the infamous
Walpole.  Need to establish dialog with others who have attempted either the
teaching or staging of Shakespeare in prison.  Thanking you in advance, please
respond directly to

Does anyone know anything about the 1983 productions of "King Lear" (Image) and
the 1983 "Tempest"?  Both are included in a catalogue listing plays available
on laser disc, but no information about either is included.

One of our faculty received the information you posted about "The Trial of
Hamlet," which she would like us to buy.  Do you have the price of that title?
Or perhaps a phone number at Purdue so we can check it out.  I'd appreciate any
further information.  Thanks.
