"the larger cultural impact of punk in the U.K."

Shakespeare and Punk have a relationship of long standing. Essential
though not necessarily delightful reading is Gideon Sims' THE PUNK of
the late 1970s, subtitled "the first ROMEO & JULIET with safety pins."
If I remember correctly, this novel(ette) features a "concert" of the
Sex Pistols, and David Bowie too makes a brief appearance. Ton

Not to disagree at all with Stuart Manger's review of The Tempest at
Stratford but I offer a small correction: Zubin Varla played Romeo
opposite Lucy Whybrow's Juliet. Emily Woof's Juliet was at the Lyric,
Hammersmith, and her Romeo was Stuart Bunce.

Hello fellow SHAKSPER'ians,

I'd like to widen my scope of reading from S to his contemporaries. Can
you recommend other playwrights of his time that would be worth my while
to read? Plays that are rich in both language and plot.

Thanks, Hal

Amazing. A mere $3000 for the entire collection. Why, oh why doesn't
anyone realize that an audience exists for individual plays if only they
were offered at a reasonable price? Tanya: how's the struggle going?

Chris Gordon (who'd love to have Jacobi's _Hamlet_ at least, and
probably at least five or so more)

PS Thanks to Terence Hawkes for his riff on Hitler's affection for
Stratford.

Wouldn't the more exact particulars be a husband murdering a wife whom
the arresting officials knew NOT to be adulterous, with the (possibly)
mitigating circumstance that the husband firmly believed that she was,
indeed, so?

Just a quibble.  Sorry.

Cheers,
