Richard III

Tuesday 4 March 2014 - Saturday 29 March 2014
Post Show Discussions
12th March: With cast/creatives, chaired by Greg Jameson of Entertainment Focus. 19th March: With cast/creatives and Dr Sarah Lewis of King’s College London.

After years of violent and tempestuous civil war, peace has finally been restored to England with the coronation of Edward IV, a nation celebrates, but Richard, Edward's brother has other ideas...

Shakespeare’s thrilling and bloodthirsty play comes to the stage through the use of text, movement and original music in this all new ensemble production.

In an England that never rests, witness one of the most violent ascensions to the throne ever mounted and welcome your new king...King Richard III.


'Prince Plockey takes up the mantle of the eponymous role with notable ease'

The Stage

'The no-frills adaptation and minimalist setting allow the darkness of the play to come into full effect, and there are some excellent performances to enjoy.'

Everything Theatre

'I strongly recommend to see this different take on Richard III.'

UK Theatre Network

'Lazarus’ Richard III is a bold and lusty production which has catapulted the bard’s work into the 21st Century at warp speed. If you love Shakespeare, be sure not to miss it. And if you’re not a fan of Shakespeare, you will be after seeing this production of Richard III.'
