Playing at the Apollo Theatre.
Limited edition Shakespeare… how can you resist? Richard III enjoyed record breaking ticket sales at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and now it’s transferring to the Apollo Theatre in London’s glittering West End. But it’s a strictly limited run, so get your skates on!
Richard III - The story
Richard, Duke of Gloucester, is discontented. Dramatically so. He seethes with constant jealousy, and his ambition knows no limits. This is the latest interpretation of the famous crippled King’s character, previously portrayed as pathetic, malevolent and everything in between.
Richard Duke of Gloucester, played by Mark Rylance, covets the crown of England. He has already killed off one king, and the king’s son, and the only things that stand in his way are two brothers and a couple of helpless young nephews, the infamous Princes in the Tower. He’s so obsessed that he’ll stop at nothing to realise his ambitions, and raising objections is a deadly dangerous pastime.
The monstrous Richard is Shakespeare’s most charismatic villain, a proper baddie with no redeeming features: murderous, hypocritical and totally power-crazed.
Immerse yourself in brutal, colourful 16th century England
This production explores the clothing, music, dance and settings of late 1500s England, a treat for the eyes as well as the ears. Exactly how far will William Shakespeare’s hot-headed despot go to achieve absolute power?
