Shakespeare's most murderous, malicious and mesmerizing king.

A tale of the psychopathic Richard's bloody and manipulative rise to the throne and his defeat.

The character of Richard is one of Shakespeare's most famous characters.

'Richard III' is considered by some critics to be a case study in how the pursuit of power can corrupt absolutely, while other critics consider the play to be a portrait of absolute evil or psychopathy.

"With an adaptable black box scenic design (by Kojac), meticulous costume designs, which evoke the sensibilities of the 15th century (by Celestina Hudson) — as well as spot on lighting and sound design and operation by Brian Newell and Trevor Clayton, respectively — this Richard III is not only a grand theatrical experience but also a warning against tyrannical, opportunistic leadership."
