When taking three very long, epic Shakespeare plays and cutting them down to a seventy-five minute drama one goes through a real struggle to decide what to keep and what to save. This is particularly true when one is working with Henry IV and Henry V, which when combined is roughly nine hours of material.
A nice post on adapting/transforming Shakespeare into a new play called The Boar’s Head, by Stuart Bousel. Another cool idea by SF Theater Pub, this one fully produced. May 16, 17, 23, 30 and 31 at 8pm at Cafe Royale, 800 Post, SF. Admission is free, but get there early to drink and stake out a seat.
