An amature production by Londons oldest amature society The KDC.
Richard, Duke of Gloucester, is determined that she should wear the crown of England. She has already dispatched one king and that king’s son; now all that stand in her way are two credulous brothers and two helpless nephews, the Princes in the Tower. And woe betide those – the women she wrongs, the henchmen she betrays – who dare to raise a voice against her.
Monstrous, but theatrically electric, Richard is Shakespeare’s most charismatic, self-delighting villain, revelling at every moment in his homicidal, hypocritical journey to absolute power. This production will bring the story into the present day with a focus on modern politics and re-imagining the role of Richard as a woman.
