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.
I am determined to prove a villain
And hate the idle pleasures
of these days.
