Richard II (1934): Old Vic Theatre Company
PrRichard II (1934)
PRINCIPAL CAST: Maurice Evans (Richard II); Frank Napier (York); Abraham Sofaer (Bolingbroke); Alan Webb (Aumerle).
"The staging is excellent, the return from Ireland being indicated by a single mast and sail quite breath-taking in assurance, and very nearly as good as the cromlech in the Westminster production of King Lear....Mr. Abraham Sofaer's Bolingbroke is a rich, resonant, and finely controlled performance; here is the man who is master not only of England but of himself." ~ James Agate, Sunday Times, 15 October 1934
