Richard III Kate Mulvany’s Richard III is fascinating. She brings a new perspective to this great villain, not because she is a woman (she plays the role as a man) but because of the level of humanity that she allows to emerge, gradually at first, as Gloucester wades through blood and perfidy to become King Richard.
