Richard III

Globe Theatre
Prices: £75.00 - £5.00 Book Now

Shakespeare’s Richard III unfolds in the Globe Theatre this summer, in a ‘hugely compelling’ ★★★★ (The Guardian) and ‘vibrant’ ★★★★ (The Telegraph) new production exploring modern tyranny afresh.

 Following generations of fighting, a fragile peace has been established, but Richard’s self-serving manipulation, disruption and ambition for the crown threatens the lives of everyone around him.

Queens, mothers and wives – grieving and angry – find solace in sisterhood and turn to curses for their revenge.
Can the factions resolve their inherited conflicts before the whole country is deceived and destroyed?

 Following 2023’s ★★★★ ‘riveting’ (The Telegraph) A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Director Elle While returns to explore the enduring allure and charisma of evil.

 ‘True hope is swift, and flies with swallow’s wings;

Kings it makes gods, and meaner creatures kings.’

– Act V, scene 2
