John Haidar directs Tom Mothersdale as Shakespeareâ€™s most notorious and complex villain, Richard III. This inventive new staging is a co-production between Headlong, Alexandra Palace and Bristol Old Vic with Royal & Derngate Northampton and Oxford Playhouse.
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 heâ€™s set his sights on the crown. So begins his campaign of deceit, manipulation and violence â€“ and heâ€™s killing it.
Yet, behind his ambition lies a murderous desire to be loved.
