Brian Turner's quoting the later translation of "The Historie of Hamblet." The
rat's not in the original, but derives from Shakespeare's play.

Subject:        Edward II Video

I have only recently joined the list and just wanted to comment about the
inquiries concerning video productions of EDWARD THE SECOND and THE DUCHESS OF
MALFI.  Both were part of the "Classic Theatre: the Humanities in Drama"
series, produced by Joan Sullivan for WGBH, Boston in 1974 -75 and broadcast
over a 13 week period by PBS in 1976.  The series included the plays:

THE TRAGEDY OF MACBETH
EDWARD THE SECOND by Marlowe
THE DUCHESS OF MALFI, by Webster
PARADISE RESTORED adapted from Milton
SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER by Goldsmith
CANDIDE, adapted from Voltaire
THE RIVALS by Sheridan
THE WILD DUCK by Ibsen
HEDDA GABLER by Ibsen
TRELAWNEY OF THE WELLS by Pinero
THREE SISTERS by Checkhov
THE PLAYBOY OF THE WESTERN WORLd by Synge
MRS WARREN'S PROFESSION by Shaw.

The scripts were published in CLASSIC THEATRE: THE HUMANITIES IN DRAMA. Sylvan
Barnet, Morton Berman and William Burto ed.  Boston: Educational Associates,
1975.  Educational Associates was a division of Little, Brown and Co.  There is
a single photo of each production for each play but they are not very useful.

I would be very interested in any information anyone might have about where I
could get video or 16 mm copies of these plays.  I hope this will be of some
use.
