Abstract: The purpose of this thesis was to compile a practical and understandable manuscript concerning the creation of the role of Queen Margaret in William Shakespeare's Richard III. This specific purpose was achieved by studying the historical facts about the character, deciding on an acting approach to the character, creating the role, maintaining a diary during the rehearsal and performance periods, presenting the play, preparing a character analysis and evaluating the performance after the close of the production. Part I includes the historical facts about the character, and the acting approach chosen. Part II is the script with the actress's gestures and movements noted and her diary. Part III is the critical evaluation of the finished product, the performance, which includes, (1) the comparison of the original interpretation to the final product, (2) the evaluation of the actor-director relationships, (3) the evaluation of the audiences' reactions to the production and (4) the pertinent personal observations of the actress.
