Don't forget that Dryden also rewrote *Troilus and Cressida* as *Truth Found
Too Late*, in which he cut out all that vulgar humor and added a tragic ending
in which Cressida (who has only PRETENDED to be unfaithful to Troilus) kills
herself.  He was extremely proud of it too.

Jesus Cora asks, "By the way, are these reworkings of Shakespeare's plays ever
performed these days?"
 
The Riverside Shakespeare Company staged Tate's LEAR here in New York a few
years back to mixed response.
 
Those who saw NICHOLAS NICKLEBY on stage or TV will remember the hilarious
Victorian-style "revised" ROMEO AND JULIET that ends the first half.  Does
anyone know if this version was based on a text that was actually performed in
19th century Britain?
 
I have long wanted to stage a RICHARD III that incorporated some of Colly
Cibber's revisions and added scenes.  I think his version is more stage-worthy
than most give it credit for being.  Has anyone else tried it lately?  It was
the standard acting version for many years.  (See the SHAKSPER archives for an
ASCII edition.)

Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0931  Q: Visual Aids
 
I've got a few transparencies of bibliographic materials, including a quarto
title page, folio title page, sample pages of folio and quarto texts, a
censor's signature, pages illustrating Jonson's revisions, etc.  If you are
interested, send me your mailing address and I'll send you the transparencies
plus the paper they illustrated.

Griselda is also a character in Caryl Chyrchill's TOP GIRLS - a nice retelling
of "patience on a monument"
