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!"?). The Women's Company. An all female production.
Performers Kathryn Hunter (Richard III), Linda Bassett (Queen Margaret), Penelope Beaumont (Lord Stanley - Derby), Louise Bush (Richmond/Grey/Ely), Penelope Dimond (Duchess of York/Brackenbury/Sir James Blount), Amanda Harris (Buckingham), Liza Hayden (Ratcliff/Murderer 2/Edward Young Prince of Wales), Anna Healy (Hastings), Liz Kettle (Edward IV/Archbishop York), Meredith MacNeill (Lady Anne), Jules Melvin (Rivers/Tyrrel/Scrivener), Anne Ogbomo (Catesby/Murderer 1), Laura Rogers (Prince of York/Dorset), Rachel Sanders (Clarence/Lord Mayor), Yolanda Vazquez (Queen Elizabeth).
