CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).

Richard III - To Hell on a Handcart archiveOr by its full first quarto title of The Tragedy of King Richard the Third, containing his trecherous plots against his brother Clarence: the pittiful murder of his innocent nephews: his tyrannical usurpation: with the whole course of his detested life and most deserved death. Of course, nowadays Richard is seen as much maligned but the image of the hunchback reciting "Now is the winter of our discontent" will remain with us for a long time. Essentially the plot sees Richard assuming the throne after Edward IV and disposing of all those with greater right. He is finally killed at the Battle of Bosworth Field after having pronounced that other great line "A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!" (shouldn't that be "An horse!"?). Richard III, crooked chancer, is a believable villain who sees a glimmer of opportunity and pursues it for all he's worth through seduction, betrayal, murder - and even to hell on a handcart. This fast-paced visually and physically expressive production is a funny, vital and compelling treatise on the baseness of human nature in the pursuit of political gain and tyranny.
Author Shakespeare. Company Third Party Theatre Company. Director John Wright.
