jayohjo More Shakespeare: Hamlet (45) RE: More Shakespeare: Hamlet 01 Jun 00

R&G Are Dead is my most favourite play in the world ever..... just felt I should get that in (but Peter T, way back - absolutely right - the film murdered all the humour)

Linked to R&G, and the linking of texts with action off stage, a friend of mine is putting on a performance soon of 'Lear's Daughters' - written by a women's group, and based loosely on King Lear, and the relationships of all the women in the play - the daughters, the nurse, the two queens and the androgynous Fool who observes it all. It's top! Explores all sorts of complexities, and misogyny (or not? - depends how you view Shakespeare) (In fact, if anyone is in the West Yorkshire area, go see - this wasn't originally intended as a plug, but never mind - LBT Huddersfield, end of June)

No more plugs, promise. Jayohjo XX
