A deformed soldier returns victorious from the battlefield. His physical appearance, and thirst for violence, prevent him from adjusting to peace. While the rest of the army become lovers and partygoers, Richard channels his energy into his next target: murdering his way to the crown.
An epic production performed in The Faction's trademark physical style by a diverse ensemble of 21 performers directed by Artistic Director Mark Leipacher. The large cast allows audiences to follow the individual characters from the dynasties of the warring York and Lancaster families, and how they are all terrorised by Shakespeare's most entertaining villain.
In this highly physical show, the actors use their bodies to create every element they need to tell the story from ghosts, to the Tower of London, and even a horse going into battle. The production will hold many unforgettable theatrical moments.
