Subject:        Henry V

Why has no one noticed the killing of the Dauphin in the current Henry V
at the National Theatre?  Why is he killed?  It isn't Shakespeare and it
destroys the next 20 years of English history!  And why are current
productions of Shakespeare's plays so dumbed down and 'sexed up'?  I
used to see productions with layers of complexity, now we're down to
about two!  Entertaining theatre, but nothing to keep chewing on for
weeks afterwards!

Is it me?
