Marathon Shakespeare Drama-goers
flock to week of history plays

Maev Kennedy, arts and heritage correspondent
Tuesday April 10, 2001
The Guardian

Gentlemen and ladies of England now abed shall set their alarm clocks to
remind them: if it is Tuesday there are still seven plays, four kings,
three severed heads, two theatres and a gallon of stage blood to go, as
the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of all the Bard's history
plays, performed in chronological order, comes to town.

The production, This England - The Histories, is the first time a
professional company has staged the complete cycle within a week, though
the RSC and other companies have done them across a season.

It is already too late to lash out
