After a long and bloody civil war, peace has finally settled over England with the ascension of the York king Edward IV. But Edward’s younger brother Richard resents the happiness he sees around him. Bitter at being treated as a monster since birth due to his physical appearance, Richard chooses to embrace his villainous reputation and when he sets his eyes on the throne of England, nothing and no one will stand in his way. As the body count rises, allies turn to enemies and Richard's rule faces a new threat descended from old enemies – a young rival named Henry Tudor, Duke of Richmond. The two men will soon face each other on the battlefield in a fight for the fate of all England.
This production will incorporate extensive double casting and nontraditional casting. Actors of all ages, body types, genders, races, and physical abilities are encouraged to audition. Real alcohol will be consumed onstage. Many roles including that of Richard will require drinking but non-drinking roles are available. Richard III performs May 24-June 2. Rehearsals begin April 16. All actors interested in roles which require sword fighting must attend fight class in April (at no cost).
