A ROYAL & DERNGATE, HEADLONG, ALEXANDRA PALACE AND BRISTOL OLD VIC WITH OXFORD PLAYHOUSE PRODUCTION

“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 (The Glass Menagerie, Cleansed, John) returns to Headlong to play Shakespeare’s iconic villain in a revelatory new production. Director John Haidar (Headlong Associate Artist) brings this classic East Midlands story to life on the Royal Stage with design by Chiara Stephenson (Glengarry Glen Ross) lighting by Elliot Griggs (Wild Duck) and sound by George Dennis (Brave New World).
