Treachery, seduction, intrigue, murder and mayhem – just another day in the life of Richard III. Deformed from birth but blessed with a seductive charm as well as an overwhelming ambition, Richard destroys his family and friends and steals the throne of England from his brother while attempting to cover his bloody tracks with civil war. Without a doubt, Richard is Shakespeare’s greatest villain and one of his most exciting plays. “Now is the winter of our discontent.”
