I have no brother, I am like no brother;
And this word 'love,' which graybeards call divine,
Be resident in men like one another
And not in me: I am myself alone.
War is over. Peace and prosperity have been restored after decades of strife. The Kingdom rejoices. All but Richard. The King's brother finds no joy in peace. He wants the crown for himself. And he will take it, no matter the cost, no matter how many lies are told, no matter how many lives are lost.
But this is not a desperate grab for power. He plans, he manipulates, he smiles and charms. He suppresses and smothers all the voices who would challenge him. This is a 'post-truth' world indeed.
Played in the spectacular setting of the Kibble Palace Glasshouse, this new production of the tale of Shakespeare’s gloriously terrifying malcontent is performed by a cast of four actors. By turns, thrilling and horrifying, and shot through with the blackest of humour, this production is essential viewing for today’s turbulent times.
Please note that this is an indoor performance. Seating is provided.
