RICHARD III

star ratingstar ratingstar ratingstar rating

Rapturous. Mark Rylance gives one of the most astonishing Shakespearean performances I've ever seen.

Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Richard, Duke of Gloucester, is determined that he should wear the crown of England. He has already dispatched one king and that king's son; now all that stand in his way are two credulous brothers and two helpless nephews - the Princes in the Tower. And woe betide those - the women he wrongs, the henchmen he betrays - who dare to raise a voice against him.

Monstrous, but theatrically electric, Richard is Shakespeare's most charismatic, self-delighting villain, reveling at every moment in his homicidal, hypocritical journey to absolute power.

An all-male Original Practices production, Richard III will explore clothing, music, dance and settings possible in around 1593. The play is presented as an exciting double bill performance alongside Twelfth Night, with both plays being presented at the Belasco on a rotating schedule. Like Richard III, Twelfth Night will also feature Mark Rylance in the title role.
