After the success of their critically acclaimed production of Julius Caesar in 2013, Iris Theatre are returning for a sixth summer season of Shakespeare in the beautiful gardens of St Paul's Church, Covent Garden, in the heart of the West End. Richard III opened on 25 June and rusn until 25 July. Press night is Monday 30 June at 7.30pm. Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action!

In an open-air promenade production of the political thriller, Richard III, directed by Iris Theatre's Artistic Director Daniel Winder, England's War of the Roses, and Shakespeare's greatest villain will be brought to one of London's busiest public spaces. As they journey with the story and move location round the grounds and inside the church itself, audiences will be drawn deep into the heart of this dark and dangerous conspiracy.

Following his lauded performance as Brutus in last year's Julius Caesar, New York-based David Hywel Baynes is returning to the company to star in the title role. David is an Associate Artist of Iris Theatre, and Richard III is his seventh production for the company.

David's previous Iris Theatre credits include playing the Queen of Hearts and the March Hare in Alice in Wonderland, Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Cloanthus in Dido & Aeneas, Chief Weasel in Wind in the Willows and Abraham in Romeo and Juliet.

Tickets: £18.00, concessions £14.00. Performances play St Paul's Church, Bedford Street, Covent Garden, London WC2E 9ED. Book online at www.iristheatre.com. Tickets are also available in person on the door.
