Richard III

Richard III

18 no. saves icon · Shakespeare

The battle scars from the Wars of the Roses are yet to heal but that’s not going to deter power-hungry Richard. The crown should be his and no one is going to stop him from getting it: not the King, his own wife, or the Princes in the Tower.


Richard’s reign of terror is about to begin and Shakespeare’s monstrously charismatic villain wants you there for the ride.

Critic reviews

This production feels close to being excellent but unfortunately is a little confused


Splatter and swagger abounds in an exhilarating conclusion to Shakespeare's Globe's cycle of history plays

The Stage

Shakespeare meets Reservoir Dogs

The Telegraph

Shakespearean civil war as Tarantino-esque entertainment


The candlelit space of the Wanamaker works perfectly for the blend of intimacy and national themes required of this play

Broadway World

A truly exciting experience

The Upcoming

Liberty-taking, lacerating exercises in black comedy

The Times

The directors have pulled off a riotously witty and jarringly modern production in the midst of this most discontent of winters
