Subject:        Query about A SHREW

At the moment I am completing a brief stage history of THE TAMING OF A
SHREW or, more accurately, a history of the effect of A SHREW upon the
staging of THE TAMING OF THE SHREW.

This amounts mostly to the importation of the additional matter for Sly
from A SHREW into productions of THE SHREW, as most will know.  What I
would like to know is whether anybody on SHAKSPER knows of any a filmed
version of the Christopher Sly material?  I do not know that Sly has
ever appeared on film or television.

On the other hand, if anyone knows of a performance of A SHREW or
recalls any interesting use of material from that version onstage, I
would be grateful for details.

    Very sincerely,
    Stephen Miller
    King's College London
