"You can present Richard III either as the climax of Shakespeare's history cycle or as a star vehicle. But Roxana Silbert's new RSC production, while perfectly credible, is neither one nor the other....Ti Green's set, with its aluminium back wall, also has a grey neutrality that counters the text's description of England as a slaughterhouse." ~ Michael Billington, "Women get the upper hand over gag-cracking Richard the scallywag", The Guardian 19 April 2012
