Richard III

Shakespeare's tour de force on power, corruption and lies comes to the Arts

A tale of power, murder and deceit, featuring Shakespeare’s iconic villain Richard III, comes to the Arts Theatre at the end of the month. After decades of civil war, the nation hangs in the balance.

Richard, Duke of Gloucester, was not born to be king, but he’s intent on gaining the crown. Tom Mothersdale heads the cast, portraying a murderous desire – behind the ambition – to be loved. Richard III runs from 24 to 27 April, with tickets from £20.
