Thank you to everyone who showed up to read Richard II on Sunday, January 18!

It was definitely a change of pace after having read the ruthlessly economical Macbeth (very little beginning, almost all ending!) and the almost giddily paced Twelfth Night at previous readings. In the opinion of many people, Richard II is a play where the poetic content trumps and sometimes impedes the dramatic thrust as I am sure a few people noticed at the reading, but what magnificent poetry and imagery! Thank you for your patience during the reading and I hope the character based game that we played at the beginning of the reading was helpful in keeping the characters straight for those of you not familiar with the play.
