In this powerful and surprisingly relevant drama we meet the ambitious and crippled Richard, Duke of Gloucester. At the conclusion of the War of the Roses, Richard jealously watches as his brother is crowned King of England, and swears he will take the throne for himself. In Shakespeare’s take on the deformed despot’s bloody history, the audience becomes Richard’s conspirators as he seduces and murders his way to the top, and is forced to confront the consequences of his corruptions.
