“From forth the kennell of thy wombe hath crept
A Hell-hound that doth hunt us all to death”
The timeless and universal story of the rise and fall of a dictator. At its centre, a twisted antagonist Richard enlists the audience as his co-conspirators and encourages them to witness his devious plots in becoming King. Fuelled by jealousy manipulation and deceit, he aims at the crown and takes to destroy all who stand in his way including those closest to him.
Richard III is Shakespeare’s most charismatic, tour de force villain brought to the Cockpit by director Lawrence Carmichael in this fierce and bold retelling of the famous story.
