The Travesty of Richard III

by The Culture Conspiracy

comedy, theatre

A comic romp through the Bard's dark and disturbing tale with an optimistic cast of two...

about the production

Join a cast of two, but a whole host of characters, as they boldly romp through The Bard's chilling tale of plots, prophecies and power. This comical-yet-dark show includes a great deal of lamenting, dissembling and beholding! Plus some more lamenting… Fans of the original play will recognise all their favourite goodies and baddies: scheming Richard, bewildered Lady Anne Neville, cursing booze-fiend Queen Margaret D’Anjou, and many more. Expect modern language blended seamlessly with the original Shakespearean text - and a couple of cheery songs!
