The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 8.0818. Tuesday, 5 August 1997.
Date: Tuesday, August 5, 1997
Subject: Shakespeare at Stratford
I would be interested in hearing some thoughts and observations from
people who have seen "Hamlet" and "Much Ado" in this year's RSC
productions - both about the productions as a whole and Alex Jennings in
particular. I saw him in "Measure for Measure" and "Midsummer Night's
Dream" as well as "Peer Gynt" in 1994 and he was superb, especially in
his portrayal of Angelo as a stiff-necked puritan horrified by his own
baser urges and torn apart by his inner conflict.
