Tennessee Williams' South by William Hutt fonds (University of Guelph)( Visual )

6 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The brutes and the belles. The gadflies and the good ol' boys. The taboos and the profound truths. They're all part of a Tennessee state of mind -- a realm of places, personalities and ideas. Williams is front and center for this exploration, reading from his works, placing them in the context of his life, and serving as guide in visits to his career-shaping refuge in New Orleans and his latter-day writing quarters in Key West. Also dramatizations by distinguished actors ... give flesh-and-bone immediacy to some of the writer's famed works. In his own words. In his own places. The resilient character and memorable characters of one of our greatest writers reside in Tennessee Williams' South."--Container
Eugene O'Neill's long day's journey into night( Visual )

This critically acclaimed production of Eugene O'Neill's autobiographical drama of a morphine-addicted mother and her tragic family unfolds over the course of a single day as the Tyrone family unflinchingly confronts its oldest, most haunting secrets. At the center of that maelstrom of blame, anger, and self-deception are moments of incredible compassion, pity, and love--and, behind it all, the profound tragedy that binds the family together. This classic translates to the screen with luminous warmth, resulting in a production that ranks high among screen adaptations of major stage works

All's well that ends well by William Shakespeare( Recording )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

BBC radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard. In the acclaimed BBC Radio Shakespeare series, each play is introduced by Richard Eyre, former Director of the Royal National Theatre. Revitalised, original and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium. "All's well that ends well" finds Helena rewarded for her ministries to the sick with the choice of any husband she wishes. Her choice, Bertram, is unwilling to have her as his wife and sets her a number of seemingly impossible tasks to complete before he will relent

This documentary film is a concise and captivating review of the legal battle waged by Dr. Henry Morgentaler in Quebec and federal courts between 1970 and 1976. Through a combination of newsreel footage, interviews, and dramatic reenactments (in which Dr. Morgentaler and his lawyer play themselves), this docudrama unravels the complexities of the case that began as a challenge to Canada's abortion law and turned into a precedent-setting civil rights case. The film also offers insight into the physician's motivation for defying the law and reveals how Canada's judicial system responded to this emotionally charged challenge of the controversial abortion law
