Synospis: "The sun has set on the glorious reign of a mighty king leaving his ill prepared son to hold a vast and crumbling empire together whilst enemies watch from every shadow. He must keep the envious and feuding Northern lords in cheque whilst across the sea a warrior enchantress recaptures swathes of the old empire. The King's foes ruthlessly destroy his allies whilst a marriage is brokered with a she-wolf of a foreign queen. All the while a deformed psychopath and his ambitious family wait to plunge the kingdom into a brutal civil war. Winter is coming. Richard III's legendary winter of discontent draws ever closer."
Phil Willmott's previous productions at the Union Theatre have included a re-imagining of 'King Lear' as a Queen's tragedy, a modern world premiere of Shakespeare's 'Double Flashood' and revivals of 'King John' and 'Measure For Measure'.
