Richard III In Souliloquy
By Tilly Lunken
Directed by Victorine Pontillon
After William Shakespeare’s Richard III
The Richard of the play is a proper villain, who revels in his evil and is cowardly in his ultimate demise.
Our Richard III places himself into a history acknowledging why he was written this way and whilst admitting he did terrible things, he deserves the due respect accorded to the rest of his family (in spite of their great sins).
Richard as a character of course comes with immense mythology - there have been many books, theories and discussions around his place in history and literature. Our addition to this includes a great performance that captures the true cost to a person's legacy of villainy - that is then exaggerated and transcribed for the stage and history.
