Year of the King

Year of the King

By Antony Sher



A classic of theatre writing, a unique insight into the creation of a landmark Shakespearian performance. Antony Sher's stunning performance for the Royal Shakespeare Company as Richard III on crutches - the so-called 'bottled spider' - won him both the Laurence Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Actor. This book records - in the actor's own words and drawings - the making of this historic theatrical event. This edition of Year of the King is published on the twentieth anniversary of the RSC's 1984 production. It includes a new introduction in which Sher looks back at what has happened to him and to the world in the intervening years.
