Comment: SHK 9.0063 Q: F and Q Productions of _King Lear_ -Reply
I know of three Lears based on a non-conflated text. Here are the
details as best my leaky memory can record them.
Last year the Oregon Shakespeare festival used the folio, slightly cut
by Barry Kraft. The acting edition is available through their gift
Adrian Noble's Lear with Robert Stephens also used the Folio. This was
at the RSC four(?) years ago. Peter Holland gives it a good write up in
his hugely enjoyable new book, English Shakespeare, Cambridge University
Shakespeare/Santa Cruz also did a Lear three(?) years ago. I can't
remember if it was the folio or quarto used, the folio I think. It was
one of them.
All the best,
