"Edward III"

This from the SHAKSPER discussion group (www.shaksper.net) ...

... a free reading of this play in Washington DC, attributed in part to William Shakespeare, directed by Merry Alderman, February 12, 2007, at 7:30 p.m.

Scottish rebels threaten England's border and John of France seizes the French crown. As King Edward sets out to restore order in the north, he sends his son Prince Edward to France and into battle for the first time. Against overwhelming odds the Prince fights to regain the French crown for his father. Rediscover one of Shakespeare's "lost" plays, first published anonymously in 1596 and filled with passages as sophisticated as those found in Shakespeare's early histories. This reading is part of the citywide festival Shakespeare in Washington.
