Richard III
    By Shakespeare

    19:00, Tue 18th – Sat 22nd November 2008 at Corpus Playroom
    Michaelmas Week 6

    Dangerously close to the centre of a new-found and fragile political stability, in a society exhausted by decades of civil war, stands a man physically deformed and psychologically scarred, raised in a warzone, incapable of empathy - but overpoweringly charismatic. A chorus of women whose lives Richard has destroyed can only look on, prophesying their nation’s destruction, as he manipulates, seduces and kills his way to the only thing he believes can restore his disfigured sense of self-worth: the crown. Discover the disturbing power of Shakespeare’s first great anti-hero.
