  • Theatre/2015/Globe/G2G Richard III/CG

Richard, Duke of Gloucester is determined that he should wear the crown and woe betide those who dare raise a voice against him. Monstrous but theatrically electric, Richard III is Shakespeare’s most charismatic, self-delighting villain, revelling at every moment in his homicidal, hypocritical journey to absolute power.

We are delighted to welcome the National Theatre of China back to the Globe, after they delighted audiences in 2012 with this, their production of Shakespeare’s hilarious horror-show of power and paranoia. Directed by the National’s Associate Director, Wang Xiaoying.

‘A crisp, no-nonsense view of the play’
