Subject: The Merry Wives of Windsor, Texas?
Comment:        SHK 15.2078 The Merry Wives of Windsor, Texas?

Janet Costa's mention of Michael Bogdanov's 1979 RSC production of The
Taming of the Shrew brought back memories of astonishment and glee. His
recent film 'The Welsh in Shakspeare', aired last month on BBC TV,
tackles a different subject with equally unsettling insight and vigour.
Snatches of Philip Madoc's compelling performance as Owen Glendower
threaten to pull traditional readings of 1H1V quite asunder.
