The Wars of the Roses are over and King Edward IV rules England. But his brother, Richard, is in no mood to celebrate. With murder, deceit and dark humour as his weapons, Richard overcomes friends and foes alike to seize the crown. But as the body count rises, he soon learns that a throne founded on blood offers little security.
Antic Disposition stage a thrilling new production of Shakespeare’s darkly comic drama in six of England’s most historic cathedrals and London’s ancient Temple Church.
The tour includes two special performances in Leicester Cathedral – the first production of Richard III to be performed in the building since the king's remains were discovered buried under a nearby car park and reinterred in the Cathedral in 2015. The production also visits Ely, Peterborough, Gloucester, Bristol and Salisbury Cathedrals.
The production then arrives at Temple Church in London for a run of fifteen performances. Located in the secluded and tranquil heart of London’s legal quarter between Fleet Street and the River Thames, Temple Church was built by the Knights Templar in the 12th-century and is one of London’s most beautiful and historic buildings. Known for its unusual circular design, Temple Church recently gained fame as a key location in Dan Brown’s novel, The Da Vinci Code.
