Shakespeare’s immortal tale of ambition, lust and murderous treachery is brilliant modernised in this riveting 20th Century masterpiece. Adapted from the critically acclaimed stage production of Shakespeare’s historical drama, this production of Richard III has Sir Ian Mckellen as a weaselly Royal usurper. The setting is a comic-book vision of 1930s London: part-art deco, part-Third Reich, part-industrial-age rust and rot.
