Listen to this astonishing radio play about Richard II on the BBC iPlayer. You can find it here:
I quite often find radio plays rather pedestrian and disappointing, but Radios Three and Four have been doing a quiet run of blinding brilliance recently. I’m not sure why everyone is not shouting it from the rooftops. Also, I am not sure why Patrick Kennedy, the young actor playing Richard II, is not a huge star. He has one of the most beautiful voices for radio I have ever heard.
As always, apologies to those of you who cannot access the iPlayer, but for those of you who can, enjoy.
