Dear Edna Boris---

Do you know the schedule for HENRY V in the park yet? When does it start? I
hear they're also doing TIMON!

P.S. To listmembers--I should be on the list for another two weeks, but I will
then be moving to NYC and probably in the bustle etc. will be off for awhile.
If anyone would like to keep in touch with me, I'll backchannel you my home
address there..... the stimulation of this list has been very positive for me,
especially working in a "vacuum" here in albany....

Thursday, 13 June 1996

With regard to Edna Boris's note that the current NEW YORKER (June 17)
publishes an article by Lawrence Weschler on HENRY V-- Weschler points out that
both films of the play delete the brutal passage in 4.6 where Henry, in
flagrant violation of chivalric codes of war, orders that "every soldier kill
his prisoners" (4.6.37 in the Arden 2 edition).  He focuses on the decision of
Douglas Hughes, director of the play in Central Park this summer, to include
this passage and, indeed, to highlight it, in order to emphasize the complex
personality of Henry V.

Some years before he made his own film of the play, Kenneth Branagh performed
the title role in a production staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company. My wife
Ellen and I saw the production in the spring of 1984, and we were impressed
both by its grim realism and by the promise of its young star.  What I cannot
recall is whether or not the passage cited above was included in the
production. Can any SHAKSPEReans help?  Does anyone recall how the 1984 RSC
production handled these words?
