Richard III - Cape Town

Richard III

Event Information

Event Type: On Stage, Drama

The annual open-air Shakespeare production turns it`s attention to one of the Bard`s most deliciously dark and delightfully droll tales -the tragedy of King Richard the Third. The infamous hunchback anti-hero (played by award-winning actor/comedian Alan Committie) takes the audience on a journey through palace politics, coruscating corruption and macabre machinations in order to become the new king of England.

Award-winning Shakespeare director Geoffrey Hyland returns to Maynardville after the triumph of Twelfth Night (2017) to helm this comic-tragedy. With a cast of 16, this production promises an action-packed, theatrical rollercoaster romp as it depicts the Machiavellian rise to power and subsequent short reign of King Richard the Third.
