Richard III

Richard III Trailer

By William Shakespeare. Directed by John Haidar.

Headlong, Alexandra Palace and Bristol Old Vic with Royal and Derngate, Northampton and Oxford Playhouse

'What do I fear? Myself?'

After decades of civil war, the nation hangs in the balance. Enter Richard, Duke of Gloucester, to change the course of history.

Richard was not born to be a king, but he’s set his sights on the crown. So begins his campaign of deceit, manipulation and violence – and he’s killing it.

Yet, behind his ambition lies a murderous desire to be loved.

Tom Mothersdale (The Glass Menagerie; Cleansed; John) returns to Headlong to play Shakespeare’s iconic villain, in a revelatory new production directed by Headlong Associate Artist John Haidar.

Tickets for performances at Alexandra Palace are on sale through the Headlong website. All other venues will be onsale subsequently and tickets will be sold through their websites.
