Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1307 Re: King John

Jack Heller asks where Prince Henry in King John has been until the last
scenes. And John Jowett gives a technical answer -- lack of boys in the
acting company. Another answer is that Henry's place has been taken by
the Bastard who performs all the tasks of a prince for John, and may
consider (see 5.5) taking the throne. Henry appears at play's end to
displace him once again.

Yours, Bill Godshalk
