WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Richard, Duke of Gloucester (Mark Rylance), is determined that he should wear the crown of England. He has already dispatched one king and that king's son; now all that stand in his way are two credulous brothers and two helpless nephews - the Princes in the Tower. And woe betide those - the women he wrongs, the henchmen he betrays - who dare to raise a voice against him. Monstrous, but theatrically electric, Richard is Shakespeare's most charismatic, self-delighting villain, revelling at every moment in his homicidal, hypocritical journey to absolute power. An all-male Original Practices production, Richard III will explore clothing, music, dance and settings possible in around 1593.
