Re:  Post-colonial stagings of the Tempest.  You might want to take a look at
Susan Bennett's "Performing Nostalgia:  Shifting Shakespeare . . ." which
includes a whole chapter on such treatments of this play.

Thanks to Mr. Sutherland for correction on Mr. Berner's name, and indeed his
performance of "Shylock" was excellent.  The play has been published by Amble
Press of Vanvouver, BC, Canada.

Subject:        Looking for texts on cultural materialism

I'm in the midst of reading the 1985 collection of essays edited by Jonathan
Dollimore and Alan Sinfield called Political Shakespeare. The collection is
subtitled "New essays in cultural materialism". I find the methodology and
politics of the cultural materialist attractive and I should like to do some
more reading about the theory.

Other than the works of Raymond Williams, can anyone direct me to some of the
central texts of the cultural materialist and his/her detractors, particularly
as it relates to theatre and performance?
