The Wars of the Roses are over and King Edward IV rules England. But his brother, Richard, is in no mood to celebrate.


With murder, deceit and dark humour as his weapons, Richard overcomes friends and foes alike to seize the crown. But as the body count rises, he soon learns that a throne founded on blood offers little security.



"This company has produced another signal triumph in what is quite simply the best production of this particular play to come into town in many a year."

Plays To See


"A theatrical coup ... The evening, with the action hurtling up and down the nave, grips from start to finish; intelligent, well-acted, sensitive."
