Subject: Royal Blood: The Rise and Fall of Kings
I've recently heard about "Royal Blood: The Rise and Fall of Kings"
produced by the Pacific Repertory Theatre at Carmel-by-the-Sea,
California. This four-year, ten play cycle of Shakespeare's Histories
begins in Fall, 2001 with:
* Edward III
* Thomas of Woodstock
* Richard II
In fact on October 6, 7, 13, and 14 all three plays are presented on the
same day in chronological order.
I searched SHAKSPER and found no references to these productions.
Searching for "Edward III" results in 135 matches while a "Thomas of
Woodstock" yields only four matches and none of the matches refer to the
The entire concept is intriguing for both History fans and apocrypha
buffs. Does anyone have anything to say about these productions?
