The beginning of the play depicts Richard portraying the rise to the throne of England King, Edward IV who apparently is his brother and Duke of York's eldest son, Richard. The speech clearly outlines Richard's discontent and aspiration while his brother is successful at leading the country. Richard has a deformed back and completely envious and plots to the murder of his brother, Clarence, who is the obstacle between him and succession of the throne and still manages to transfer the blame on his sick brother, the King to speed up his death. Richard then tries to please Anne Neville to gain her favor and manages to convince her, wins her over and marries her despite her hate for him.
After the King's death, he becomes the England's lord protector until Edward's elder son becomes of age. He then orders several executions that leaves Queen Elizabeth unprotected to suitably place him at the position where he is to be seen as fit for King. After being crowned King, he sends the two princes to jail where he had them executed. With a series of murders by Richard including that of his wife in order to allow him marry his niece Elizabeth, daughter of Queen Elizabeth, Richard is finally killed by Richmond who is then crowned King Henry VII.
The earliest known performance took place in 1633 on Queens's birthday November 17th. Though it is believed that the play "Buckingham", was noted in Henslowe's diary back in 1593. Several other productions have occurred since then with the earliest most prosperous occurring in 1700. The genuine version was later seen in 1845 at a theater named Sadler Wells. Since then there has been several other production acted on stage. This play is perceived to be among the earliest plays by William Shakespeare (1564-1616), an English poet and playwright and the popularly known excellent English language writer. He is also the world's distinguished dramatist.
