RICHARD III RICHARD II
Laurence Olivier as Richard III. His movie of the play is fun. Richard II in a portrait from Westminster Gallery.


Cost (shudder)

If you are a brand-new student--that is, have never worked with me before--the cost will be $50/class, $400 total. If you are a former student from no matter how long ago, you will pay your old rate.

You may audit a class to see if you think it would be useful to you.

TUESDAY: RICHARD III:
We all admire and enjoy the play, but it's not (as Shaw described it) a sort of grand Punch and Judy show. You probably know that Richard III is not dragged down by a crocodile at the end.

SATURDAY: RICHARD II: I could tell you that the play is a practice sketch for Hamlet, thereby belittling both plays. It's a bizarre duel between Richard, who thinks he's destined to lose the crown, and Henry Bolingbroke (Henry IV) who doesn't think he wants to be king but manages to get the crown anyway. The play even begins with a duel. And it's the beginning of the second tetralogy; in the next play, we meet Falstaff.
