The reading was yesterday, turning out quite well! Had to shuffle around the cast a ...

I was searching through YouTube and found footage of some French productions of the play. It was very interesting! In one the whole opening monologue (almost) is done to the court, with Richard laug ...

Huh. I'm in America and can see it. Odd. This one is about the young man who has a virtually identical case of scoliosis as Richard. They put him through all kinds of paces to see if he could (wit ...

I'll keep you informed.

For what it is worth, Sir Ian McKellan starred in a very good film version of Shakespeare's play that transposed the setting to a Fascist 1930s Britain. Kevin Spacey did a ...

The Elizabethan theatre was officially censored, so portraying the last Yorkist King as anything other than a villain simply was not in the cards. Shakespeare actually did something quite interesting ...

I count myself fortunate (some of that fortune self-made) in that my first play Carmilla has not only been produced three times but has been published.
