PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is that scene everyone does. Richard III, Act 1 Scene 2, Anne is mourning the loss of her Father-in-Law and Richard interrupts, rudely, to tell her that his love for her caused him to commit the murder.

Except...its such a huge scene, I really believe that there are several ways to cut it that can really change the tone and motivations of the actors if you aren't doing the entire play. And you aren't, SO you can either play the wit and word-play - the "hunchback toad" and all the fun insults - or you can play the story of Anne who knows she is nothing more than a pawn and by marrying Richard, will buy her some more time on earth and maybe even a crown. That makes her interesting to me. So this specific cutting plays to Anne's story and the crazy politics of the monarchy. I kept in the spit, of course, the kiss, the sword... AH!! It might be overdone at competition, but only because it's such a great scene - it always wins!
