Subject:        Q: Two Noble Kinsmen

The Company of actors I worked with last summer have decided to do Two
Noble Kinsmen this year as a change of pace. Though I have begun to read
the play, I know little about its history or what scholars feel about
it. I must say I really enjoy it so far... and the Jailor's Daughter
seems like one of the most interesting women I've met in Shakespeare.
All those soliloquies!

Anyway, my question is this: As a company that specializes in the  late
plays of Shakespeare, is this joint-effort really considered
"sub-standard" by Shakespeareans? Or just different. What are it's
greatest assets and biggest downfalls? And for those of you who have
directed, designed or acted in it, how was it to work on? How was it
received?

Sincerely,
Eric Armstrong
