Subject: Seduction of Lady Anne in RICHARD III
I recently attended a performance of RICHARD III, and it struck me that
I've seen this play quite a number of times, and Lady Anne has always
been played by actresses who were attractive. Has anyone ever seen this
role played by an actress who was plain, or even homely? It might make
her seduction by Richard more believably - and even more cruel.
