At the end of the War of the Roses, Richard feels miserable. He wants nothing more than the crown won by his brother, Edward IV. He sets out to take the crown by force and cunning, fueled by his envy and pride. He weaves a spider’s web of lies, turning allies into enemies, and threatening to topple the entire kingdom as soon as he gains it…
Richard III is William Shakespeare’s most lovably evil villain, as renowned for his charm as for his horrific acts. His scheming politician archetype is seen to this day in dramas such as House of Cards and Game of Thrones, and, far too often, in real life as well.
Richard III plays until March 24 at the Staircase Theatre.
The Staircase Theatre 27 Dundurn Street North Hamilton.
