Richard III

I confess I am a serial return visitor to the Globe in London. I always try and go once a season. This year I really wanted to catch Twelfth Night with Stephen Fry but that was all sold out.

I did not realise what a wordy play was for the principle playing Richard. With the exception of 2 scenes and the last where he is dead on the floor Richard is on stage for all or most of the Play.
 
Our Richard was played by Mark Rylance. His depiction of Shakespeare’s controversial Richard was excellent. One doesn’t necessarily expect a history play to be humorous…
