The Bowling Green State University Theatre Department will be opening its
95-96 season with a production of GOODNIGHT DESDEMONA, GOOD MORNING JULIET
by the Canadian playwright, An Marie MacDonald.  I know that the play was
first produced in Toronto around 1990, and I'm trying to find out if there
have been any productions in the United States.  The Shakespearean
connection is that the main character is trapped in a time warp and is
deposited in the middle of original productions of OTHELLO and R & J.
 
Thanks in advance.  You can reply directly to me unless you think other
SHAKSPERians would be interested.

Students of Shakespeare should read Robert Wright, "The Biology of Violence",
New Yorker 3/13/95 68-77, surveying recent work in evolutionary biology with
particular reference to the human male's disposition toward violence.  The
immediate focus of the article is the inner-city neighborhoods of late C20
North America, but as I read it bells kept ringing in my head--Macbeth, Richard
III, Edmund, Don John; it provides a very stimulating context for "If it be
man's work, I'll do it," and the other statements of that ilk, but also for
hundreds of other speeches and gestures.
 
The prime source for the articles ideas is Martin Daly and Margo Wilson,
_Homicide_ (1988), which I have not read.  I gather that its findings have not
been universally accepted in the relevant scientific and social scientific
disciplines, as might be expected, so would be interested also to hear from
those of you aware of both Daly and Wilson and any relevant skeptics.
 
Homicidally,

Subject:        Ian Wilson's Biography
 
My dad just sent me Robert Taylor's review of Ian Wilson's _Shakespeare: the
Evidence_ (Boston Globe, 3/8/95, p. 34), a biography which apparently argues
for Shakespeare the Catholic.  Has anyone read the book and ha ve comments?
 
BTW, a very interesting line in the review: "The research (unusual in a book of
this sort) is up to the minute..."  Hmmmm...
 
Have a good day!
