Richard II

2005
Character: Richard II
Directors: Trevor Nunn
Writers: William Shakespeare
Cast: Kevin Spacey, Julian Glover, Ben Miles, Oliver Cotton, Peter Eyre, Susan Tracy
Storyline:
Spacey's fine performance confirms his Shakespearean credentials. He starts as a man who combines the empurpled trappings of power with a self-delighting irony. He greets Mowbray's fierce protestations of his innocence with a deflating murmur and, having paid the briefest of tributes to John of Gaunt's death, whimsically cries: "So much for that."It is in the great central scenes of Richard's return to England after the Irish wars that Spacey really comes into his own.
