Richard IIIwith Royal & Derngate, Northampton and Oxford Playhouse
“What do I fear? Myself?”
After decades of civil war, the nation hangs in the balance. Enter Richard, Duke of Gloucester, to change the course of history.
Richard was not born to be a king, but he’s set his sights on the crown. So begins his campaign of deceit, manipulation and violence – and he’s killing it. Yet behind his ambition lies a murderous desire to be loved.
In our latest collaboration following the rapturously received Junkyard in 2017, Headlong return with Tom Mothersdale (The Glass Menagerie) to play Shakespeare’s iconic villain in a revelatory new production directed by Headlong Associate Artist, John Haidar.
