Rehabilitating Richard

Man or monster?
Power, seduction, deceit, mockery, murder.  All in a day’s work for Richard III.  Or was it?  A theatre company wrestles with the real versus Shakespearean image of the notorious English king, and one of the company’s obsession with him.

                  This play shows the contrast between the actual Richard III and Shakespeare’s play. Perhaps I would have enjoyed the show more if I was familiar with Shakespeare’s play, but this story seems to lack coherence.
                  The actors give top flight performances that made me really care about the characters. However, the story felt rushed and disjointed to me.
                  The play does tell a good story with a beginning, a middle and an end. It addresses the inaccuracies in Shakespeare’s play. If you’re familiar with Richard III and you’re interested in learning more about him then you might want to check this out.

                  Great performances from the whole cast. This is quite the undertaking. I like how the play tied a character’s struggles with physical imperfections, connecting it to Richard III and the plight of the outcast. Another case of the victors writing history. Would love to see this developed further into a longer play.
