Lori Culwell--

This is going to sound like self-promotion, and perhaps it is, but I have an
article. "Finding 'Heaps of Jewels' in 'Lesser' Shakespeare: Richard Duke of
York and The Wars of the Roses" which is in press with the current volume of
the NEW ENGLAND THEATRE JOURNAL.  "Richard Duke of York" was an adaptation of
Henry VI plays, mostly part 2, designed for Edmund Kean and performed at Drury
Lane for seven performances in 1817.  "Wars", of course, you already know.
There are striking similarities in the rationales given for their adaptations
by each adapter in the prefaces to the published editions.

If you're interested I can send you a copy by snail-mail, or as an attachment
to an e-mail if I can figure out how to use the latter.

Gentle readers,

 Lori M Culwell recently put this request forward:

>I'm working on an article on Peter Hall and the RSC, and would like to know of
>any articles/ books/ videotapes on the Hall/ Barton collaboration "Wars of the
>Roses".  Any information would be of interest.

The most thorough chronicle of the project is Richard Pearson's book, <A BAND
OF ARROGANT AND UNITED HEROES: The Story of the Royal Shakespeare Cmpany
production of THE WARS OF THE ROSES.>  This 1990 paperback (113 pages) is
published by The Adelphi Press, 4-6 Effie Road, London SW6 1TD. It may be hard
to locate a copy in the USA.  Sally Beauman's THE ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY: A
HISTORY OF TEN DECADES will also provide useful commentary.
