The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.

An interesting debate indeed. I wonder if most audiences in 2017 will believe the play to still be fact? That’s a little hard to credit, but I can see the sensitivity issues. I presume that this is a simple commercial exercise for all involved, and agree that the publicity has been generated around this long debate about Richard. I think I would find it most unusual to watch this play in a cathedral, and it is unlikely to convert me to the side of those who demonise the character. I have a feeling that the man himself would have welcomed the notoriety.
Best wishes, Pete.

I’d say it’s not hard to credit since accompanying history is rarely given in English classes and even if an article debunking the play’s premise is included in the programme, I suspect there are a lot of people who don’t read anything other than the actor bios. I’d love to see it in the Cathedral and I do hope that Antic Disposition take up Matt’s offer. They’d be crazy not to. It should feature more prominently in the programme than the actors, and that’s an actress speaking! I also think the Ricardians (other than Matt) are unnecessarily hypersensitive.
