Subject:    Major new Renaissance Drama DVD Releases

There have been at least three major DVD debuts in the past month. The 
1970 _Edward II_ starring Ian McKellen:

And amazingly, at long last, _Playing Shakespeare_. I jumped out of my

more within reach than previously offered. It was just released on June 2.
