A full-length historical drama. (A lot of locations, but simple to stage, give or take the butt of malmsey.)
After the death of Edward IV, his brother Richard becomes Lord Protector and then King. Richard III is determined to be a good king, but his principles - out of place in the royal court - enable challengers including Henry Tudor to plot his downfall. A counterpoint to Shakespeare's Richard III (which was based on the testimony of Richard's greatest enemy), Good King Richard sets the historical record straight.
