I agree with Rick Jones that the superb National Theatre production of Richard
II hardly deserves to be called "controversial," least of all for casting
actress Fiona Shaw in the title role. Hers is not the languishing, lyrically
indulgent Richard that we have come to expect from recent interpretations. On a
stripped bare stage, so contrary to the lavish production values at the RSC,
Shaw and her dressed in black fellows create a minimalist, claustrophobic sense
of menace, a world of lawless reservoir dogs.
