Only disabled actors should play Richard III, says outgoing Royal Shakespeare Company boss Gregory Doran

  • The outgoing head of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) has said that only disabled actors should now be cast as Richard III. Gregory Doran, who announced he was stepping down as artistic director last month, said that choosing able-bodied actors for the role "would probably not be acceptable". Richard III, often referred to in the Shakespeare play as "cheated of feature" and "unfinished" has historically been played with a hunchback or a cane.
