RSC chief Michael Boyd battles with Shakespeare’s Histories (1/2)
25th April 2007
SHAKESPEARE: THE HISTORY PLAYS (1/2)
Michael Boyd, artistic director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, talks to Heather Neill about the great cycle of eight history plays, and especially Richard II and Henry IV parts one and two (Courtyard Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon).
At its best, the RSC is about setting challenges for actors and celebrating the art of acting, not just typecasting people.
