A thrilling re-telling of Shakespeare’s violent tale of politics and power…

Civil war, political upheaval, violent unrest: these are the backdrop to arguably Shakespeare’s most popular history play.

And centre-stage, a man who is typically portrayed either as monster or misunderstood hero, protector of the royal lineage of England or callous child murderer.

Following on from 2013’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and inspired by the planned re-burial of Richard’s body in 2014, this thrilling production will bring to life the violent struggle for power among the nobility that provided the context for Richard’s rise and fall.

"one of the most accessible and intelligent productions of one of the favorites in the Shakespeare repertoire"
