Subject:        Peter Sellars *Per.*

Dear SHAKSPERians,

Please accept a query that is only tangentially related to Shakespeare. I am
researching a Peter Sellars production of _Pericles_, and my work would be
immeasurably enriched by the opportunity to interview Sellars.  Does anyone
have any idea how to reach him at the present?

                                                   Gratefully,
                                                   David Skeele

I've been combing through a few introductions, but can't find the level of
detail I want.

I know there is some buisness about Thomas of Woodstock, that professors tell
me Shakespeare's audience would have "known about."  Bevington refers to it
as"his complicity in the death of his uncle," but I can't find out why he would
have wanted him killed or any further details of the circumstances.  To what
extent does Woodstock's end, before the play starts, mirror Richard's death at
the plays end?  If you can direct me to a good source, or want to tell the
story with your own spin, I would be grateful.
