Subject:      Files in SHAKSPER Archive

 

A subscriber called to my attention a posting in the Archive from the old SHAKSPER site that was incomplete. I consulted the archive of the old site and found that indeed the posting was truncated. So I took the post from the old site and added it to the new, resulting in a corrected posting. 

 

Thanks to Abigail Quart for pointing out this fault.

 

Should any others find postings in the archive that appear damaged in any way, please let me know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that I can see if I am able to correct the problem.

 

Best wishes for the New Year (with New Year’s announcement to come),

A friend of mine tracked down the recordings on the Lawrence Berkeley 

Lab website:

 

http://irene.lbl.gov/volta-release.html

 

The "To be" disc is about 2/3 of the way down that page.

 

Here's LBL's press release about the project, with more photos:

There's a link to the "To be" file on that page, too.

Prison Shakespeare

Colleagues:

 

I wrote amiss recently when I stated that Curt Tofteland is helping to start a Shakespeare Behind Bars type of program in Australia. Rather, he is working with a program already well-established. Here is that program's own story:

 

http://www.qldshakespeare.org/prison_project_history.html

 

I might as well ask if anyone has surveyed the number of prison Shakespeare programs worldwide. I do recall an NPR segment last year about a production of R&J in a South African detention center. (I think it was a youth program.) I will also recommend the book released last year, Performing New Lives, a collection of essays edited by Jonathan Shaillor and Evelyn Ploumis-Devick.

 

Cheers,

Jack Heller
