Comment:        Re: SHK 10.0728 Q: Barton's War of the Roses

To Jeff Kean:

John Barton, together with Peter Hall and Clifford Williams, began the
RSC "Wars" in 1963 with an adaptation of 1, 2, & 3H6 as H6 and Edward 4
in 1963, followed by R2, 1H4, 2H4, and H5 in 1964.  I don't know of a
print or script form available; if one existed, it would be in the
archives of the RSC and/or the Shakespeare Institute.

The English Shakespeare Company also did a "Wars" in the mid- to
late-80s.  Michael Bogdanov and Michael Pennington write about the ESC
and this project in *The English Shakespeare Company: The Story of the
"Wars of the Roses" 1986-1989*, London, 1990.

Other members of the list, especially those affiliated with the
above-named institutions and/or groups, would probably know more than I
regarding this question.  My source for this info is Margaret Shewring's
King Richard 2 in Manchester U P's Shakespeare in Performance Series
(1996).

The published John Barton script of The Wars of the Roses should be
fairly easily available.  The Bell Shakespeare Company in Australia have
recently acquired a copy from the RSC, and there are copies in the
Fisher Library at Sydney University. It was published by the BBC in
1970. The ISBN is 563065133.
