Michael Yawney asks,

1) Call me Mike, except in print where I am Michael P.

2) Stratford-upon-Avon.  The Shakespeare Center Library is to the left
of the Shakespeare birthplace, across Henley Street from the official
gift shop - where they sell the Shakespeare in Performance Titus
Andronicus.  They have a small reading room, and archive reviews,
production stills, videos, and prompt books for all RSC productions.
The collection goes back, with increasing spottiness, for decades.
Videos do not go back as far, obviously.

The staff is, well, wonderful, until they catch you writing in your
notebook when your note book is atop some of the materials - a bad habit
of mine.

You have to apply to use the library, but the limited pass is free.

You can learn more about them at this URL.

And yes, if you do find that book please let us know.

Cheers,
Mike Jensen
