Have you read the Sydney Morning Herald of today?

In the ‘Spectrum’ supplement to today’s Sydney Morning Herald and The Age in Melbourne there is an article by Elissa Blake about the Old Vic production of Shakespeare’s Richard III, which is coming to Sydney the coming week.  Should you have a print copy of either paper, you can have a look, otherwise there are links below.

For her article Elissa wanted to get a variety of views of the role.  She talked to John Bell, the artistic director of Bell Shakespeare, who had played the role three times;  to Ewen Leslie, who played Shakespeare’s baddie in last year’s production of the Melbourne Theatre Company; and Pamela Rabe, who played Richard III in the Sydney Theatre Company production of The War of the Roses  in 2009.

However, last but not least, she talked to one of the “enthusiasts in the worldwide Richard III Society”.  Elissa interviewed me by phone about 10 days ago.  It was just a short conversation, but obviously I tried to cram as much information as possible into it – needless to say that only a small part made it into her article.   We welcome Elissa’s interest and appreciate that she was prepared to look past the theatrical Richard to the real Richard.  And we feel  honoured that she left us with the last word in such an illustrious group of interviewees.
