Subject:        Additions to Shakespeare Spinoffs

I have just received the Shakespeare Spinoff Bibliography, which I found very
interesting.  Here are a few additional Shakespeare poems, books and plays that
I have come across.

Also Arnold Wesker's THE MERCHANT (already on the main list), now seems to have
had its title changed to SHYLOCK.

HAMLET -

John Cargill Thompson, *Hamlet II - Prince of Jutland*, 1984 / 1995, Monologue.

Tom Stoppard, *Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead : THE FILM*, 1991, Film
Script - very different from the play.

Hunter Steele, *Lord Hamlet's Castle*, 1987, Novel.

John Wain, *Feng*, 1975, Poem.

Richard Brautigan, *The Rape of Ophelia*, 1970, poem.

Richard Brautigan, *The Castle of the Cormorants*, 1970, poem.

KING LEAR -

Elaine Feinstein & The Women's Theatre Group, *Lear's Daughters*, 1987,
Play.

MACBETH -

John Cargill Thompson, *Macbeth Speaks*, 1991, Monologue.

Terry Pratchett, *Wyrd Sisters*, Comic Novel.

Stephen Briggs (based on the novel by Terry Pratchett), *Wyrd Sisters*,
Play.

Jean Binnie, *Lady Macbeth*, Play.

MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM -

Pete Brooks, *If We Shadows*, Play.

RICHARD II -

ROMEO AND JULIET -

Short Play.

Michael Redmond & Nola York, *Wild Wild Women*, Musical.

MISCELLANEOUS -

Vlady Kociancich, *The Last Days of William Shakespeare - A Novel*,
Translated by Margaret Costa, 1990, Novel (Shakespeare is not a

Yours,
THOMAS LARQUE.

The Midsummer study guide has been updated and moved to
http://www.ivgh.com/amy/shakespeare/ .  Items of interest include the text cut
for performance and annotated with production photos, a summary (with lines
from the text), a brief bio. (from a handout for junior & senior high
students), teaching Shakespeare through performance ideas (hyperlinked paper
that I wrote after the 1994 National Institute on Teaching Shakespeare), photo
album (London, 1991 - Shakespeare's Globe Museum, 1991 - Shakespeare Tour,
1991: Warwick Castle, Anne Hathaway's Home, Shakespeare's Birthplace & Museum
(including BBC costumes) - Folger Shakespeare Library, 1996), links to other
Midsummer productions, and a discussion page!

You may also be interested in "The Undiscover'd Country" at

the Star Trek universe).
