Each volume in the "Shakespeare in Performance" series analyzes a particular play, choosing for detailed discussion a small number of stage productions which seem to throw the most light on the play in question. Describing a play which has provided triumphs for such actors as Burbage, Garrick and Olivier, this text provides a comparative account of various British productions of "King Richard III", including Olivier's film, the 1964 Barton and Hall production, Antony Sher's rendition and several BBC versions.
