Subject:        Henry IV
 
For an upcoming production, our theater will be developing an adaptation of
_H4_ that will incorporate both Parts into one single evening, similar to the
idea behind Welles' _Chimes at Midnight_.  We will focus on the father-son
triangle (Henry, Falstaff, Hal) with Hotspur as an added counterpoise.
 
I am interested to know of any productions SHAKSPEReans may be aware of that
may have tried anything similar.  Obviously, the recent _My Own Private Idaho_
falls into this group, and I know A.R.T. and the Shakespeare Theatre recently
did both parts toether, but merely as the two Parts of Henry IV, rather than as
an adaptation.
 
Also, does anybody know of any critical discussions, directing journals,
journal articles, etc. of particular relevance to this focus?  Has anybody seen
a production that took a similar approach, or tried to adapt the plays in any
way--and what were your reactions?
 
Sorry to make this such a general request, but I'm pretty much soliciting any
information anyone might have.  Thanks in advance,
 
Gavin Witt
Court Theatre, Chicago

I was interested in hearing from anyone who has had a chance to take a look at
the new CD-ROM by Attica of _Romeo & Juliet_. We have a copy here at Oxford and
it looks quite good but is anyone else using it at the moment?
