Subject: Hamlet: The Cuts; Fortinbras: The Tour
A leaflet I received from the National Theatre (London) this morning,
reminded me that John Caird and Simon Russell Beale and members of the
company of the current production of HAMLET will be leading discussions
at 5.30pm over the next three days, 3, 4 and 5 July on various aspects
of producing Hamlet.
Unfortunately, I will probably not be able to make them, and I was
curious as to whether anyone who is going might be kind enough to send a
few comments on what transpires at these platform performances?
The first, 'Hamlet, the cuts' particularly interests me, but
'Fortinbras, the absent prince' on 4 July and 'Elsinore and beyond, the
tour' on 5 July also sound potentially worthwhile.
Sincerely, Stephen Miller
