Ron,

There is far too little.  Nevill Coghill's dreary version of *Doctor
Faustus* is available, as is Derek Jarman's idiocyncratic *Edward II*.
Both may be purchased here:

The BBC taped *The Changling* without its subplot, though I believe it
is out of print.  It is not available via Amazon which claims to have
everything.

There was a French version of *Volpone* where the subtitles can't be
read against the often white background.  It was available from Video
Yesteryear, but they seem to be out of business.  There is an audio
release of the play pending in Canada.  I'm not sure if I should say
more about that until its release, but you may contact me off list if
you wish.

Alex Cox has completed his film of *The Revenger's Tragedy*, which had a
screening in Liverpool earlier this year.  It does not appear to have
been released anywhere as yet, though I shall be glad to be corrected
about that.

I'll be teaching a class in the spring quarter which will involve
another teacher and two actors from the drama faculty.  If you know
anybody in the drama department at your school...

All the best,
Mike Jensen
