Richard III by William Shakespeare‌ 

Adapted and directed by Anna Griffith

March 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20 at 7:00 pm

March 14 & 21 at 2:00 pm

A kingdom, a horse, and lots of blood. King Richard III.

Richard III by William Shakespeare, raises questions about political corruption and coercion as we follow the story of Richard III's violent rise to power. Shakespeare offers a portrait of the ultimate villain, a protagonist who is simultaneously charming and ruthless. The play asks audiences to think about how the characters around Richard III are complicit in his bloody maneuvers onto the throne, and offers insight about the contemporary political moment.

Anna Griffith is an interdisciplinary performer and director who is interested in exploring a multimedia version of Shakespeare’s ultimate villain and the people who helped him get there. The designers include, Parjad Sharifi (scenographer), Heather Robertson (costume design), Lucy Mulder (hair and makeup design, student), Steven Bowman (sound design, student), Luke Pardy (visual dramaturge, student) and Kira Taves (assistant director, student).
