Act 2, Scene 39 – “A bit more reference-y.”

richard2-page-001Notes on Richard II

We’re delving back in to the history plays this week, and getting to grips with Richard II for the first time, specifically this scene where the king realises just how badly wrong things have gone.

With most Zounds characters, I try and make them an archetypal image of that character. However, for Richard, I decided to go a bit more reference-y, and specifically based him on Ben Whishaw’s fascinatingly otherworldly portrayal of the doomed king in The Hollow Crown.
