Role Description

Actor A: (Chorus / Ensemble) plays Richard II primarily, the essence of this character shares some traits of Hamlet’s. He is, in the beginning, arrogant, callous, sensitive, careless, petulant, imperious, quixotic, brilliant. As time goes on he is also vulnerable, passionate, compassionate, childlike, highly dignified, self-reflective, impelled by rage and grief and moments of being sanguine. His journey is one of invincibility to a keen awareness of mortality. But he never stops seeking to understand each new circumstance he finds himself in.
