Exploring: Bosworth Field by Sir John Beaumont
An exploration of Bosworth Field, a narrative poem about the famous battle. It's rather good.
The poem isn't split into parts, and some of the splits are inexact, but roughly the readers were Eric Karoulla as Henry VI, Brakenbury, Ferrers, Talbot, Bourchier, Clifton; Liza Graham as Norfolk, Stanley, Richmond, Percy, Surrey, Scout, Byron, Catesby; Emma Kemp as narrator for Richard's forces; Gina Moravec as Richard, Oxford, Hungerford.
The host was Robert Crighton, who also read narration from the side of Richmond's forces.
This continues our exploration of history plays/texts - especially on Richard III.
