Subject: RSC Promptbooks
I recently discovered the RSC's book on its Tercenary production of
Henry V. The book contains the complete text of the play, and prints
lines that were cut from the text in performance in italics. There is
extensive commentary on blocking, the decision to cut certain passages,
etc. It was a fascinating read. Does anyone know of other promptbooks
(not necessarily RSC productions) like this one?
