"To mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, [The Guardian] asked leading actors to perform key speeches from his plays.  Here, David Morrissey speaks the opening lines from Richard III in which the scheming Richard lays out his plan to turn his brother, the Duke of Clarence and the newly enthroned King Edward IV, against each other."
