Richard III


"What do I fear? Myself?"

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 he’s set his sights on the crown. So begins his campaign of deceit, manipulation and violence – and he’s killing it.

Yet, behind his ambition lies a murderous desire to be loved.

Tom Mothersdale plays Shakespeare’s iconic villain, as Headlong returns to the Playhouse in this latest OP80 co-production, directed by Headlong Associate Artist John Haidar.

Post show talk on Wednesday.

Duration: 2 hours 15mins with interval
