mark, silent king, the moral of this sport  
One of the Complete Walk films from Shakespeare's Globe - Richard II with James Norton as Richard and Dominic Rowan as Bolingbroke - seems to be available in (what I'm assuming is) its entirety here:


It's interesting: removing the onlookers makes Richard's actions seem much less theatrical. But I find James Norton's hesitant, tearful Richard interesting, and wonder what he'd do with the whole part.

I get ALL THE WESTMINSTER HALL FEELS from that video -- Richard II spent years and thousands of pounds renovating it and the first thing that happened in it when he was done was that he got deposed in it. It's pretty amazing watching the scene (albeit heavily cut) performed in there.

(They also did the 2 Henry IV film in the Jerusalem Chamber. FEEEEEEEEEELS.)

Oh, yes: I loved the way James Norton's Richard looked around at the hall, and the hall "looked back" - as though, to him, the stone figures were looking down on him with scorn or mockery.
