RICHARD III

DETAILS

  •  Richard III (Tom Mothersdale) kneels over the body of Henry, who is bleeding from his head. Richard is wearing all black with black leather gloves. He has an articulated brace on his left leg. He's pointing at himself and angrily shouting. A curved wall of arched mirrors sits at the back of the stage, the floor looks like black gravel.

  •  Richard III (Tom Mothersdale) lays on the floor shielding himself from the ghosts of Clarence (Tom Kanji) and Henry (John Sackville) who stand over him. Richard is a tight white pool of light. Clarence blows white dust over Richard creating a large plume over him which Richard tries to waft away. Henry looks on directly behind.

  •  The full company stand spread apart across the stage for Richard III's (Tom Mothersdale) coronation. He is visible on a throne on a balcony above at the back of the stage. Behind the company on the stage floor are the arched mirror panels which give the effect of a larger crowd. The light on them all is green-tinged, like an overcast day. Stage smoke mist rises at the sides and catches the light.
