One of the greatest anti-heroes ever to grace the stage, The Shakespeare Company takes on the tale of the malicious Richard III to kick off another amazing season.

One of Shakespeare’s histories, it tells the story of one king’s rise to power through any means necessary. Power-hungry and bitter about his physical deformity, Richard aspires for the throne and decides to kill anyone to fulfill his destiny in this haunting play.
