What's it about?

KING. LOVER. MURDERER.

England is in the midst of the Wars of the Roses when Richard, Duke of Gloucester, sees a chance for the crown. He is Shakespeare’s twisted villain who we love to hate as, with ruthless cunning and silver-tongued charm, he stops at nothing to remove brothers, wife, nephews and friends from his path.

As the death toll mounts, Richard seizes the throne, but at what cost? He’s surrounded by vengeful ghosts, friends he can’t trust and a terrible curse cast by the old Queen Margaret. In a final battle at Bosworth Field, the bloody feud between York and Lancaster must end at last.

2017 marks twenty-five years of Northern Broadsides, and this co-production with Hull Truck Theatre brings the celebrated company back to its roots, when it staged Richard III as its first play in the Marina Boatshed in Hull.
