I need your help; I've recommended to our University Theatre Society that they
try a Twelve-Minute Hamlet that I once saw (both in performance and in print).
They have been persuaded and now for the life of me I can't put my hands on it.
 Perhaps I have the wrong title?

Can anyone help with a location for this funny reduced version of the play?

I heard recently of recordings of Shakespeare plays in reconstructed period
pronunciation.  Are these readily available, and where?

Best wishes.
John

Subject:        Who originated the roles

Is there a source which gives documentary evidence about which actors
originated the primary roles in each of Shakespeare's plays? I am particularly
interested in who originated the role of Falstaff.

The only comment I have been able to find attributes the role to Thomas Pope.

        Thanks,
        Mike Kremer
