Award-winning actor Kate Mulvany (The Literati and Tartuffe) will play one of the most ambitious and gleefully amoral villains ever written.
First performed around 1593, Richard 3 is the portrait of a Machiavellian psychopath, a cold-blooded and dastardly manipulator who slaughters his family, marries his victim’s widow and eventually betrays his allies, all in his quest to become king. His hunchbacked deformity masks his seething malevolence.
Artistic Director Peter Evans continues to daringly re-imagine Shakespeare’s works with a boldness and unexpectedness that will leave audiences breathless. The blood-soaked and naked ambition of Richard 3, who leaves scores dead and only the ghosts to whisper the truth, will be a truly thrilling night at the theatre.
