The Hollow Crown archiveThe Hollow Crown was devised in 1961 by John Barton for the Royal Shakespeare Company as a celebratory entertainment, by and about, the Kings and Queens of England. From Richard II's soliloquy at Pemfret Castle through to Malory's Morte D'Arthur, by way of Victoria's naively moving description of her own coronation and a 15 year old Jane Austen's 'partial, prejudiced and ignorant historian's entertaining account of the monarchy from Henry IV to Charles I, the production gives a human face, often in their own words and usually comedic, to the changing role of the monarchy through the ages in an illuminating and beguiling way.
