Perhaps someday such a cycle of Shakespeare history plays will begin
where some of us believe it should begin, with the youth of Richard II
in "Thomas of Woodstock."

Those of you who have not seen any of the 'This England' plays are in
for an absolute treat.  I saw them all at Stratford last year (and
managed to sneak a second look at Henry V at the Barbican a couple of
weeks ago).

All the productions are outstanding, the acting is superb - watch out
for Sam West's Richard II - and most of all William Houston as Hal and
subsequently Henry V.  He is the most exciting and compelling Henry I
have seen.

King John is part of the Stratford Summer Season and I saw it last
Saturday.  It is at the Swan Theatre - I don't know ticket
availability.  Catch it if you can - it's a great production.

Regards
Marion
