About this event

Dates, address & more

A classic Shakespearean history of a king in the throes of jealousy and murder. Young Richard of Gloucester uses the War of the Roses chaos to begin his unscrupulous climb to power.Despite being manifestly unfit to govern, he overcomes each obstacle in his way to seize the crown, as King Richard III. But as those around him turn against him, and as his plans begin to unravel, where else can he turn? The Lancastrian opposition has returned to drag the country into battle once more and put an end to Richards tyrannical rule.Richard III is a savagely comic analysis of the exercise of power, reminding us of the dangers of tyranny and our duty not to let it go unchecked.Directed by Gregory Doran with Arthur Hughes as Richard, this is the thrilling climax to the epic history of the Yorks and Lancasters. Recorded at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.15Students 10,16 & under 10
