On Friday, May 3rd I shall serve on an Epic Theater’s post-performance pannel on empathy in Shakespeare’s Richard III: http://epictheatreensemble.org/r3
Is Richard III incapable of feeling empathy? How much of his ruthlessness is in his nature? What is the relationship between the machinations of his mind and his deformed body? And does he have accurate insight into his emotions only when his body is in its natural state?
