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.
Following his celebrated performances as Macbeth, Julius Caesar, Coriolanus and King Lear for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Greg Hicks takes on the role of the tyrant king Richard in this exciting new production, directed by Arcola’s Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen.
A production that, while not breaking radical new ground, offers a swift, clear, actor-driven rendition of a Shakespeare play with a darkly memorable Hicks at its heart.
Greg Hicks is magnetic in a furiously intense version of Shakespeare's brutal play.
God, Hicks is good at Shakespeare.
