“NOW IS THE WINTER OF OUR DISCONTENT MADE GLORIOUS SUMMER BY THIS SUN OF YORK” ACT I SC I

RICHARD IS HIDEOUS. AND RICHARD WAS BORN KNOWING THAT HE WOULD ONE DAY BE A RULER. 

His hunchbacked deformity masks his seething malevolence. His brutal mind breeds brutal times when not even children are safe.

Award-winning actor Kate Mulvany (The Literati and Tartuffe) will embody one of the most ambitious and gleefully amoral villians ever written. First performed around 1593, Richard 3 is the portrait of a Machiavellian psychopath, a cold-blooded and dastardly manipulator who slaughters his family, marries his victim’s widow and eventually betrays his allies, all in his quest to become king.

Peter Evans, Artistic Director of Bell Shakespeare, continues to daringly reimagine Shakespeare’s works with a boldness and unexpectedness that will leave audiences breathless. The blood-soaked and naked ambition of Richard 3, who leaves scores dead and only the ghosts to whisper the truth, will be a truly thrilling night at the theatre. This dark and visceral production is not to be missed.
