Richard III

by William Shakespeare

directed by Scott Roberts

A Performed Reading

In March 2015, Richard III's recently discovered bones will be reburied in Leicester Cathedral. To mark this occasion, we'll be presenting a rehearsed reading of an abridged version of Shakespeare's play. Villain and anti-hero, the play's protagonist allows the audience a window into his Machiavellian mind through confessional speeches; weaving a complex tale of personal and political ambition, jealousy, infanticide, seduction, betrayal and murder. Anyone with a passion for great story-telling and strong language should come along.
