‘What do I fear? Myself?’
After decades of civil war the nation hangs in the balance. Enter Richard, Duke of Gloucester, to change the course of history.
Richard was not born to be a king, but he’s set his sights on the crown. So begins his campaign of deceit, manipulation and violence – and he’s killing it.
Yet, behind his ambition lies a murderous desire to be loved.
Tom Mothersdale (The Glass Menagerie, Cleansed, John) returns to Headlong to play Shakespeare’s iconic villain, in a revelatory new production directed by Headlong’s Associate Artist John Haidar.
