King Edward is on the throne, and England is at peace. But don’t worry – it won’t be that way for long.
Gripping and outrageous, Shakespeare’s Richard III is the tale of a ruthless, power-crazed misogynist who lies and cheats his way to the highest seat in the land.
In their latest collaboration after the critically-acclaimed Clarion and An Enemy of the People, Arcola’s Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen directs RSC Associate Artist Greg Hicks (Macbeth, Coriolanus, King Lear) as the tyrant King Richard III.
“I’ll have this crown of mine cut from my shoulders
Before I’ll see the crown so foul misplaced.”
