Publisher's Summary

A tragedy, a comedy, and a history all rolled into one, the story of the tyrannical Richard III ranks among Shakespeare's most popular plays. Opening with the famous "Now is the winter of our discontent" soliloquy, this masterful work follows its antihero as he plots to steal the throne of England, causing murder and mayhem all along the way. A full cast, including Robert Stephens and Dame Peggy Ashcroft, brings this devilishly entertaining work to life.

Stephens is fantastic

Stephens is perfect as Shakespeare's most theatrical King and monster. Not Shakespeare's best work but highly enjoyable is occasionally tedious

Good audio version

This is about as good as you are going to do for an audio version of Shakespeare. It was quite good.
