The Seniors Review, December 2014

William Shakespeare’s Richard II, as staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2013, is a tour de force of magnificent acting, staging and design. Director Gregory Doran refrained from modernizing the play, thus avoiding any empty contemporary political connections. Hence, the viewer of this DVD can concentrate on Shakespeare’s poetry and the action. Richard II is played by David Tennant, who may well have set the standard for this role for many years to come. This DVD is eminently worth having in any Shakespeare collection. © 2014 The Seniors Review
