Richard III: By William Shakespeare
EDINBURGH  •  The Lyceum  •  24 - 28 August 2016

William Shakespeare: Richard III

Deeply influential theatre maker Thomas Ostermeier returns to the Edinburgh International Festival with a raw, gritty reimagining of Shakespeare’s unflinching study of evil, in a compelling and critically acclaimed production from Berlin’s Schaubühne Theatre.

Richard is a deformed, hobbling, hunchback who has helped his brother Edward to become King with a few judicious murders. But the end of the Wars of the Roses brings Richard no peace. Playing his rivals off against each other, and gleefully killing again, he clears away every obstacle in his own path to the throne.
