Mike Lew’s darkly comic take on Shakespeare’s Richard III has its UK debut, directed by Donmar Artistic Director Michael Longhurst.
As winter formal gives way to glorious spring fling, Richard – the class loser – lusts for power at Roseland High.
After years of torment due to his hemiplegia, Richard plots the ultimate rise in power: to become president of his senior class. But like all teenagers, and all despots, he is faced with the hardest question of all: is it better to be loved, or feared?
This production is supported by Adam Kenwright.
