Glorious Son of York — play
by Rex Stephenson
For Professional, Amateur and Educational theatre groups playing for Family, Youth and Adult audiences.
Richard returns after 400 plus years to answer charges he feels Shakespeare and other historians have made against him. He believes in his heart that Shakespeare maligned him, and if he can just explain his position he will have the place in history he rightfully deserves; But Richard doesn’t find Shakespeare all bad: He is enchanted by the way Shakespeare portrays him as a seducer of women; by Shakespeare’s unflattering portrayal of Elizabeth and Margaret; and most importantly Shakespeare’s description of his death.
