Seductive and Dangerous: “Richard III” by The Bridge Group

“A horse, a horse, my Kingdom for a horse!” an actor utters in front of an audience. This is possibly the fifth time I’ve seen this line being said to an audience that I was part of. I’ve seen around that many iterations of the Duke of Gloucester’s rise into kinghood, catch him being both devilish in some and boorish […]

Many times in this life, I’ve seen an endless amount plays/movies/TV shows about writers and their tribulations. In fact, I did one myself, right at the beginning of my writing career while I was still in college.
