Research and development for Richard II29/08/2018
Adjoa Andoh and Lynette Linton co-direct a women of colour cast in a post Empire reflection on what it means to be British in the light of the Windrush anniversary.
This autumn I’m assisting the cast and creatives of Richard II through a series of R&D workshops. We are reflecting on the text, discussing the history of black Shakespeare performance and considering issues of race and representation, identity, gender and feminism by looking at scholarly and creative texts. It’s exciting to be part of a real production and to share insights with people eager to hear and use them.
