‘Brilliant … a fiery, charismatic central performance from Daniel Monks’– Evening Standard
‘Michael Longhurst’s production shines’– Time Out
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.
