Richard III archiveOr by its full first quarto title of The Tragedy of King Richard the Third, containing his trecherous plots against his brother Clarence: the pittiful murder of his innocent nephews: his tyrannical usurpation: with the whole course of his detested life and most deserved death. Of course, nowadays Richard is seen as much maligned but the image of the hunchback reciting "Now is the winter of our discontent" will remain with us for a long time. Essentially the plot sees Richard assuming the throne after Edward IV and disposing of all those with greater right. He is finally killed at the Battle of Bosworth Field after having pronounced that other great line "A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!" (shouldn't that be "An horse!"?).
Performers Tom Mothersdale (Richard III), Stefan Adegbola (Buckingham), Debhle Crotty (Elizabeth), Heledd Gwynn (Hastings/Ratcliffe), Tom Kanji (Clarence/Catesby), Michael Matus (Edward/Stanley), Leila Mimmack (Anne/Norfolk), Eileen Nicholas (Duchess of York), Caleb Roberts (Richmond/Messenger), John Sackville (Henry).
