SHAKESPEARE’S FIRST ACTS: RICHARD III
Director Tim Carroll discusses the first act of the play, which he is directing at Shakespeare’s Globe this summer with Mark Rylance as Richard, with Sophie Reynolds. This interview is part of theatreVOICE’s new series for Olympics year 2012, looking at the beginning of each of Shakespeare’s plays. Recorded at the Globe, 8 May 2012.
It’s a very big question how you start Richard III, because it’s iconic in a way that not many of the openings of the plays really are.
