Subject:        [15 Minute *Hamlet*]
 
One of my students is producing the "Fifteen Minute Hamlet" for a festival, and
neither of us has ever seen it performed.  Stoppard hints at a bouncy treatment
of the script;  any suggestions as to time, place, specific blocking, sets?  Is
there a traditional treatment of this script or is open game for the actors and
director?  The play is Hamlet performed in 13 minutes, with a reprise of the
play again in the last 2 minutes.  I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who has
produced it or has seen a good production of the play.

Subject:        British/American performance
 
There seems to be a general conceit that American directors approach
Shakespeare differently than British directors. Would anyone care to posit why
that might be so, and what those differences might be? Is it a question of
academic (ie literary) training, or technical acting differences, or
presumptions about audience familiarity with the plays, or what? Is there such
a difference? Is it different for comedy than for the tragedies, the histories
or the romances? How would you characterize the "American" style, and the
"British"? Any and all comments would be welcome and very useful.

 In  Richard 2 both Bullinbroke ("My heart will sigh when I miscall it so"
(1.3.263) and, interestingly, Aumerle ("My heart disdained that my tongue/
Should so profane the word" (1.4.12-3) are concerned with speaking with
integrity.  Is there a Renaissance Philosophy term for this?  All I can think
of neurolinquistic integrity.
 
Many Thanks
Alison Horton

I am trying to find reviewers via the Internet for a book on the English Comedy
of Manners (Benson, Delafield, Thirkle from Austen).  In response to the List
command, the SHAKSPER listserv did not show a Twentieth Century or Victorian
literature discussion group comparable to SHAKSPER or REED.  Do you know of
such a group?  If not, could you recommend a professor I could contact via
e-mail to help me find appropriate reviewers?
 
Thanks.
