Richard III done by the Actors Ensemble at Berkley

Trinity College Dramatic Society (very bad film quality, but good example of apron stage done in modernity)

In this live version of the play Richard III, the director took creative license and had the lead actor play the role of Richard III with script in hand.

Notable Extras:

Benedict Cumberbatch reads at Richard III’s reburial service in 2015 after the late monarch’s skeleton was discovered beneath a parking lot. (carpark for the British)

The climactic scenes from the earliest surviving British film version of Shakespeare’s Richard III, accompanied by a specially commissioned score by Laura Rossi. The film presents highlights from a stage version performed in Stratford in 1910; lead actor Frank Benson had been playing Richard on stage since the 1880s.
