Subject: What Happened to 'FESTE'?
Comment:    SHK 19.0397 What Happened to 'FESTE'?

My colleague Mairi Macdonald has already indicated that FESTE is still alive and 
well under the guise of the RSC Performance Database. It is accessible via the 
Shakespeare Birthplace Trust's website www.shakespeare.org.uk, by following the 
links to the Library and Archive. The page address is 
http://www.shakespeare.org.uk/content/view/339/339/. There is also a link to the 
Database from the RSC's website though it is necessary to drill down quite a way 
to find it.

The database is kept up to date with information relating to RSC productions, 
based mainly on programmes from the RSC's archives. The data indexed includes 
both cast and creative teams, and some information about upcoming productions. 
The database is as accurate and complete as we can make it for productions by 
the Shakespeare Memorial/Royal Shakespeare Company going back to 1879, and is a 
major source of information for anyone interested in Shakespeare in production.

Also available through the same main page is the catalogue of RSC archives and 
related material, which although far from complete contains records for 
collections of photographs, RSC prompt books and viewing copies of videos of RSC 
productions.

Best wishes,
