Richard III Part Two

by David Pownall

Richard III Part II: A play on three time levels: firstly, we meet George Orwell clutching the manuscript of ‘1984’ uncertain to publish it fearing that it may be misunderstood; secondly, we switch to the year 1984 and our introduced to 1985’s monopoly-like game ‘Betrayal’ based on Richard III; lastly, we are in the game itself – in the world of Richard III and his court. Exploring the question: what does History matter when it is being re-written as it is being lived?
