Other works
He recorded several spoken-word albums for Caedmon Records during the 1960s, and among his recorded performances was the title role in William Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar".

He starred as Cyrano in a famous London stage production of "Cyrano de Bergerac" in 1946, the same year that Jose Ferrer first played Cyrano in the Broadway revival of the play. Nearly twenty years later, Richardson recreated his complete performance with a different supporting cast for Caedmon Records.

His famous stage roles include Falstaff, Cyrano de Bergerac, Sir Toby Belch (in "Twelfth Night", and the only one of his Shakespearean roles that he re-created on television), Peer Gynt, and Bottom in "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

In the 1930s, he played the title role in a then rather controversial stage production of Shakespeare's "Othello", with Laurence Olivier as Iago. This production was influenced by the writings of psychologist Dr. Ernest C. Jones, who suggested that Iago was homosexually in love with Othello, and that this motivated him to drive Othello to suspect his (Othello's) wife Desdemona of infidelity. Dr. Jones was the same psychologist who influenced Olivier's Oedipal depiction of Hamlet in the 1948 film.

He played "Tiresias" in the 1946 Old Vic production of "Oedipus Rex", which visited Broadway. Laurence Olivier played "Oedipus".

He played Henry in the London stage production of Sutton Vane's "Outward Bound" in 1924.

On the 1st October, 1946, in London, he played Inspector Goole in 'An Inspector Calls'.

Famously played the title role in the 1975 production of Ibsen's "John Gabriel Borkman". It is reported that during one of the performances, at the end of which his character dies on a bench, he didn't get up for the bow, and stayed on the bench. One of his co-stars went to check if he was all right. It turned out that Richardson couldn't get up because he was suffering from absolute exhaustion after having played the role.
