In Richard III, Shakespeare created a self-proclaimed villain battling to obtain and retain the crown. A ruthless Machiavellian, Richard seduces and slaughters his enemies and relatives, becoming so tainted with blood that "sin will pluck on sin." Michael Kahn directs this gripping tragedy, one of Shakespeare's earliest and most enduring successes. Geraint Wyn Davies returns to play the dazzling title role.
