Written during Elizabeth I’s reign in 1591, Shakespeare puts a Tudor spin on the end of the Wars of the Roses and the rise of the Tudors. This political thriller about the desire for power and the all-consuming corruption of absolute power is made even more timely by current world news.
Richard, Duke of Gloucester sweeps aside anyone in his way to achieve his goal of Kingship. However, retaining the crown will take him to the darkest of places and turn a country against him.
Shakespeare at the George last performed Richard III in 1979. Grab your chance to see the original ‘House of cards’. Did he really kill those princes?
“You might think that. We couldn’t possibly comment.”
