When peace descends, Richard, Duke of Gloucester, is not a happy man.
Crippled from birth and intensely ambitious, he sets about bending the world to his own desires. No bond is too sacred, no blood too thick – nothing will stand between Richard and the crown.
Shakespeare gives us one of the great villains in Richard III, in a chilling and darkly comic story of power and ambition. Druid continues its exploration of Shakespeare’s kings with the acclaimed creative team and members of the Druid Ensemble who worked on DruidShakespeare: Richard II, Henry IV (Pts. 1 & 2) and Henry V.
