Subject:        Richard of Bordeaux

This is in reply to Andy White's query about the play RICHARD OF BORDEAUX. The
real name of the author was Elizabeth Mackintosh (1896-1952), who wrote under
the pseudonym of Gordon Daviot.  The play was published as French's Acting
Edition No. 1942 (1935) and is available at various libraries, including the U
of Penna.,  U of Minn., U of Mich., and Columbia.  It should be available
through Inter-Library Loan.

Comment:        Re: SHK 7.0516 Qs: Richard of Bordeaux

Richard of Bordeaux was written by Elizabeth Mackintosh under the nom de plume
of Gordon Daviot. She may be familiar to other SHAKSPEReans under her other nom
de plume of Josephine Tey, under which she wrote several very successful
detective novels, including The Daughter of Time, which revisits the
controversy of Richard III and his reputation.

If memory serves, Gielgud had a great success in the stage version of Richard
of Bordeaux in 1937. I believe that all of Daviot's plays were published in one
collection in the 1950s. She herself died in 1951 or -52.

Best regards,
Laura Blanchard
