Ragner Lyth's Hamlet

Subject:        Ragner Lyth's Hamlet

My pal Bernice Kliman and I are up to no good. Step one is trying to
find every reference to the Swedish film *Tragiska historien om Hamlet -
Prins av Danmark, (1985),* directed by Ragner Lyth. Our goal is to show
the distributor there is sufficient interest in English speaking nations
to make it worth their while to make copies available. Steps two and
three come later.

So far we have five books by Herb Coursen:

Watching Shakespeare on Television
Shakespeare: The Two Traditions
Shakespeare in Production
Shakespearean Performance as Interpretation
Shakespeare in Space: Recent Shakespeare Productions on Screen

It is also listed briefly in Jo McMurty's *Shakespeare Films in the
Classroom: A Descriptive Guide.*

Ken Rothwell discusses it in both of his books, and of course it is in
Bernice's great book on *Hamlet* performance, even supplying the image
on the dust jacket.

Bernice will check Jim Harner's wonderful bibliography, but we would
like to find references or articles in other books and journals that may
not turn up by searching Jim's database. Anything at all, from an
article that considers it solely, to the merest mention in a footnote is
worth knowing about.

As many of you know, I seldom read SHAKSPER posts anymore, and so I
usually ask that answers to my questions be sent to me off-list. Please
feel free to do so, but since this may be of general interest, perhaps
clicking the reply button would be best this time. I shall check
SHAKSPER in a few days. Please accept our thanks in advance.

All the best,
Mike Jensen

Garrick's Clandestine Marriage

Subject:        Garrick's Clandestine Marriage

I hope Hardy will permit me a slightly off-topic post, but I believe
some SHAKSPEReans may be able to help me.  I am trying to put together a
list of 20th- and 21st-century American productions of David Garrick's
The Clandestine Marriage.  I'd be pleased to hear (off-list) from anyone
with knowledge of such productions, or of appropriate resources for this
information.

Thanks--
Jeremy

What is the earliest known source for the idea that Midsummer Night's
Dream was performed for a wedding with Queen Elizabeth in attendance?

Nathan Field

Subject:        Nathan Field

Epicoene is supposed to have been "acted in the year 1609.  By the
Children of Her Majesty's Revels."  "Nat. Field" is listed among "The
principal Comedians."  Since he was baptized in 1587, that would have
made Field 22 years old at the time of the performance, which seems a
bit old to be considered a child.  What was the average age of the
"child" actors, and was it common to have actors as old as Field would
have been?

Thanks,
Jeff Myers
