Audio: director's talk

Richard II director Greg Doran talks to our Events Coordinator Nicky Cox about the production.

Amongst other things, Greg discusses the language of the play, why he's against 'dumbing down' Shakespeare, Richard's motives, the challenge of taking the production to cinema audiences and David Tennant's hair.
