You can order the HAMLET at the Social Studies School Service at
http://www.socialstudies.com/c/@AXmihSv9SilIA/Pages/product.html?
nocache@3+record@TF25656 But it ain't cheap:  100 dollars, US.  I think
the Hordern LEAR is there, too.  I don't know any other place to order
these.

However, BBC AMERICA recently broadcast the HAMLET, and I was able to
make a tape, so you might keep an eye on the BBC schedule, too.

The Jacobi Hamlet is one of my favorite characterizations.  I have a
page on it at:

I'm not sure about "reasonable price," but the entire BBC series, along
with select individual titles, are available for purchase via

http://writingco.com/c/@ZEsEWaHpKm0LM/Pages/product.html?record@TF25651

If anyone knows of a source for the individual plays at less than $100 a
pop, I'd love to know about it.

Happy hunting,
Meg
