Richard II

Shakespeare: the funny bits

Bushy: The wind sits fair for news to go to Ireland,
But none returns. For us to levy power
Proportionable to the enemy
Is all unpossible.

After slogging through King John I wasn’t looking forward to another history play, but Richard II was surprisingly good, Simpsons references and all. Apart from all the bits with nobles yelling at one another and throwing down their gages, which made me feel like the floor must have been covered in plums.
