Columbia University School Of The Arts Presents All-Female RICHARD III Directed By Nana Dakin

Columbia University School Of The Arts Presents All-Female RICHARD III Directed By Nana Dakin Columbia University School of the Arts is proud to present Nana Dakin's (Columbia MFA Directing Candidate 2018) production of RICHARD III.

The sport of Kings is a contest of fair and foul play. Richard, the underdog, is spurned at court for his physical condition but eyes the crown with bloody determination. No bond is too sacred to betray as he manipulates his way to glory.

In this story of depravity and ambition, an all-female cast redraws the lines that define gender and power and asks, how far is too far to get what you want?

FEATURING: Brie Archer, Anya Banerjee, Tessa Barlow-Ochshorn, Hannah Benjamin, Elizabeth Chappel, Britta Kuhn, Katie Mack*, Maya Martin-Udry, Rita McCann, Zainab Musa*, Adaku Okpi, Alice Renier*, Briana Sakamoto*, Kea Trevett*, Phoebe Wright.
