2015 Season - Shakespeare's Globe Richard II DVD

£19.99

Shakespeare's Globe 2015 production of Richard II filmed on the Globe stage.

 

Shakespeare bestows wonderfully virtuosic language on his history of the entitled, vain, aloof, then suddenly vulnerable Richard II, a monarch for whom the Bard penned some of his most luxurious lines.  In a 'lucid and compelling' production from director Simon Godwin, Charles Edwards in the title role 'brings a lovely light touch to the black comedy of Richard's blithe self-centredness' (The Independant).  His highly accomplished performance 'movingly graduates into tragedy in the final act' endowing the play with 'exceptional variety of texture' (Guardian ****).

 

Spoken in Shakespeare's English.
