Richard III by Hiraeth Artistic Productions - Gatehouse
Hiraeth Artistic Productions presents William Shakespeare's Richard III, directed by Zoe Ford, at the Upstairs at the Gatehouse Theatre, a 128-seat fringe venue, above The Gatehouse Pub, in Highgate north London, from 4 Feb to 1 March 2014.
Surrounded by the dilapidated remains of England's once grand court, Richard, Duke of Gloucester has high hopes for the crown. After murdering the King, Richard and Clarence aid their older brother Edward on to the throne and thus their family, the House of York into power. However it isn’t long before Richard’s jealousy and his own unshakable ambition set into motion a rampant trail of backstabbing, plotting and slaughter.
