The reductio ad absurdum of online Shakespeare videos, this is a 17-second interpretation of, approximately, the death of Buckingham from Richard III (Act 4 Scene 1), as performed by a piece of garlic (playing Sheriff) and a lime (Buckingham). It was created iby animator Jason Wishnow as a fleeting comic exercise (‘a late-night test’) before he went on to produce the more ambitious, eight-minute epic Oedipus, likewise performed by a cast of vegetables, but on a far grander scale (the film took two years to produce and was premiered at the Sundance Festival). Oedipus is also available on YouTube, and has its own website.
