Play | Richard III: Shakespeare Drama Outdoors


Tony Award nominee Robert O’Hara (Slave Play, The Public’s Barbecue) brings his sharp wit and storytelling genius with a bold new production of Richard III. One of Shakespeare’s most indelible villains, Richard is determined to be King. Following his lust for power and the throne, he manipulates, kidnaps, and kills all who stand between him and his throne, using brilliant words and dark charm to conceal his dismantling of government and justice. This masterful dive into the muddy middle between political genius and violent power grab arrives with piercing relevancy and electrifying drama.

After discovering a secret cache of forbidden books, they set about teaching her things she had never imagined. Directed by Dai Sijie With Zhou Xun, Liu Ye, Chen Kun 110 min.
