Richard III

Shakespeare's classic tale of murder and resentment comes to life in a new co-production between Headlong, Alexandra Palace and Bristol Old Vic with Royal & Derngate, Northampton and Oxford Playhouse.


Meet Richard: the man, the myth, the monster. A new production of Shakespeare’s Richard III unfolds in the Globe Theatre this summer, with Artistic Director Michelle Terry in the title role. Richard can taste the throne but before he can place the English crown on his own head, he must first set in motion a series of villainous events that threaten the lives of everyone around him. Imagine a world in which self-serving ambition is audaciously paraded and pursued, and murderous crimes are committed and confessed with irresistible charm, charisma and impunity. Who can stop this pathological narcissist before the whole country is deceived and destroyed? Following 2023’s ★★★★ ‘riveting’ (The Telegraph) A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Elle While returns to direct. ‘Alack I love myself.’ – Act V, scene 3 Access performances Captioned - Mon 27 May 7.30pm & Mon 15 Jul 7.30pm Relaxed - Sat 1 Jun 2pm & Wed 10 Jul 7.30pm Audio described - Thu 20 Jun at 2pm & Mon 22 Jul 7.30pm BSL - Sat 22 Jun 2pm & Fri 19 Jul 7.30pm
