The Company

"Richard III" by William Shakespeare

15th – 18th February 2017

Sabrina Celia Senior as Richard III

I am determined to prove a villain. And hate the idle pleasures of these days.

The production will run 15th – 18th February 2017 in the Drama Studio Glossop Road doors open at 7pm for a prompt 7.30pm start.

In an alternate time-line the climax of the Wars of the Roses coincided with the nadir of trench warfare. The victorious Yorkist commander, the Duke of Gloucester decides that supporting her sibling’s claim to the throne is no longer good enough. She sets out to eliminate all her competition and wear the garland of the realm. However, her success awakens Lancastrian revanchism and the Earl of Richmond leads an invasion force to take back this noble isle.

As Europe commemorates 100 years since WWI The Company transplants William Shakespeare's biggest villain to 1917. Following the lead of a number of recent high profile Shakespeare productions Richard and a number of other parts have been gender-swapped.
