Richard III

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could tell me a good scene from Shakespeare's Richard III which my friend and I could perform for an English oral. We need to speak at least 20 lines each. Thank you.

You did not mention if you are males or females. It's not a necessary detail, of course, but if you want a same gender role we need some more information. I also suggest you choose a scene you personally liked. Even if there is another character, you can skip that person's lines or have one of you say them.

You might want to consider Act I scene 2, which is the famous scene when Richard woos the widow of the man he has just been responsible for killing. This is an excellent scene, that you might need to edit to fit your requirements, but it really gives us a feel for Richard as a character and his devious manipulation.
