    Staged readings: ELEANOR OF AQUITAINE (, Playwrights Horizons), BUFFALOES (, Newport, RI, East Hampton, NY, LA, director, John Frankenheimer), THE PERFECT MARRIAGE (, East Hampton Playwrights Theatre, Roundabout), THE SHAKESPEARE ROAD (, New Jersey Repertory Theatre, East Hampton Playwrights Theatre, variously starring Lisa. Is Kelly's " Eleanor of Aquataine and the Four Kings" a re-issue of the book, or did she re-write it? I read reviews on Amazon of all four books recommended (Meade, Marlkale, Weir and Kelly) and all have four stars (Kelly's book gets part of a fifth star). Meade's sounds interesting, almost gossipy (like her book on Jazz Age women).
