Subject:        Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead

Does anyone know if the text used for the 1995/6 National Theatre
production of Tom Stoppard's "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" has
been published, or is otherwise available or accessible?  I can't find
my copy of the programme, and the production isn't on the NT website.
But I seem to remember that the revision was reasonably significant
(mostly by cutting: he had taken out my favourite jokes!), and I am
wondering how this was connected to Stoppard's adaptation of his own
play for his 1991 film (the screenplay for that was published).  I
should be grateful for any information or references.

My reason for asking is that I am trying to compare theories of
Shakespeare's texts with work done on living playwrights, drawing on
Philip Gaskell's work on Stoppard in "Text and Act" (1978).
