Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This remarkable edition features a newly edited text of Richard III based on one of the earliest printed texts of the play, along with detailed notes and performance annotations. An integrated audio CD showcases the deeper understanding and enjoyment from the power of performance.

Hear Read See:

-- Hear recordings of great contemporary and historical performances of key scenes from the play.

-- Read about a modern production, from the director's point of view.

-- See production notes and photos alongside the text that takes you inside the stage experience.

-- See photos from contemporary stage productions and movie adaptations.

-- Read and see how a modern cast approaches the play, from interviews with the actors.

-- Hear and read about how a legendary voice coach (previously from the RSC) approaches the text and works with actors on Speaking Shakespeare.

Synopsis:

Treacherous, power-hungry, untempered by moral restraint, and embittered by physical deformity, Richard, the younger brother of King Edward IV, is ablaze with ambition to take Englands throne. Richard III, Shakespeares long chronicle of Richards machinations to be king, is a tale of murder upon murder. He gains the throne, but only briefly. In a terrible dream, the ghosts of his victims visit the now-despised monarch to foretell his demise. Richard's death in battle the next day concludes his reign of evil, ushering in at last a new and hopeful era of peace for England.
