by William Shakespeare
As charming as he is evil, Richard III marries and murders his way to England’s crown. Appointed protector of his nephews, the two child princes who are the heirs of the late Edward IV, Richard wrests the throne for himself. He rules from 1493 until his death in 1485 in the Battle of Bosworth Field. Captivating and horrifying, the play is Shakespeare’s concluding chronicle of the Wars of the Roses.
Chesapeake Shakespeare last performed Richard III as a movable play with a WWI setting in the ruins in PFI Historic Park. For their 15th Anniversary, they are remounting the popular Richard III indoors with fresh energy.
Vince Eisenson will reprise his role as England’s last king of the House of York.
