Age Suitability


Adjoa Andoh, who played Lady Danbury in Bridgerton, returns to the stage to direct and perform as Shakespeare's legendary antihero Richard III. Her previous production of Richard II at Shakespeare's Globe received widespread praise. The story of Richard, Duke of Gloucester's ascent to power via deception and the death of his rivals is told in Richard III. Adjoa Andoh, drawing on her own experiences growing up in rural England during the 1960s, investigates the corrosive effects of pathologizing the body and attributing bad motives to people based on their physical characteristics. Adjoa explains that society has stigmatized Richard, and labeled him as a terrible person because of their biases. In this new production, we see what occurs when the person being hit in the face decides to fight back by throwing a punch of their own. Richard III tickets will get you into a legendary, highly anticipated, and limited-time show.

The Story

Book your Richard III tickets to see Shakespeare's historical drama about the English king. At the beginning of the play, Richard, Duke of Gloucester, schemes to overthrow his brother, King Edward IV, and become king himself. Richard uses his influence over his family and friends, including his brother's wife and children, to pave the way for him to ascend the throne. In addition, he uses the deaths of other influential people, including his own nephews, to cement his hold on power. Once in power, Richard's oppression and paranoia drive away many of his nobility and commoners alike.
