Richard III
    By William Shakespeare

    ‘Sin will pluck on sin’

    It is 1980 and the notorious York family has finally made peace with their bitter rivals, the Lancasters. Everyone is looking forward to a period of calm, united under the new head of the families, Edward. Edward’s younger brother, Richard, however, has other ideas.

    Cast-away and jealous, the unassuming Richard plans to take the role of Don for himself.

    Political drama meets gangster-thriller, this re-adaptation sees Shakespeare’s least redeeming character seamlessly slot into the modern world by acquiring the position most suited to them: that of a scheming mobster.
