Barrie Rutter's Example What You Will Entry

Barrie Rutter founded theatre company Northern Broadsides in 1992. He has acted in or directed 28 of Shakespeare’s plays. Here, he has composed a speech for the (beheaded) Duke of York at the end of Henry VI, Part 3. The speech is inspired by both Shakespeare’s words and an artwork created by Chris Vine, who Barrie commissioned to create images for all of Shakespeare’s 37 plays, a collection first exhibited at Dean Clough Galleries in Halifax.
