Richard II Globe DVD

Richard II Globe DVD

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.

Running time: 148 minutes
