About this show

Teenage Dick is a brilliantly hilarious take on Richard III, a Shakespeare classic about power and lust. Teenage Dick reimagines one of the most famous disabled characters of all time as a 16-year-old outsider in the deepest winter of his discontent: his junior year at Roseland High. Picked on because of his cerebral palsy (as well as his sometimes creepy Shakespearean way of speaking), Richard is determined to have his revenge and make his name by becoming president of the senior class. But as he manipulates and crushes the obstacles to his electoral success, Richard finds himself faced with a decision he never expected would be his to make: Is it better to be loved or feared?
