DruidShakespeare: Richard III

Town Hall Theatre

This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

Directed by Garry Hynes

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.

‘Brazenly Irish . . . A huge achievement’ – Irish Independent on DruidShakespeare 

Shakespeare gives us one of the great villains with Richard III, in a chilling and darkly comic story of power and ambition. Druid’s production features the acclaimed creative team and Druid Ensemble behind DruidShakespeare, as the company continues its exploration of Shakespeare’s Kings.
