Richard III

1485 marks the end of The War of the Roses. The death of Richard III on the field at Bosworth is the culmination of 30 years of gruesome murder, intrigue, and civil war. Thousands of ordinary people and soldiers died and though there were numerous, vicious players in this saga, history offers up no one more deadly than Richard, Duke of Gloucester. His ruthless craving for power was driven by a prodigious intellect corrupted by rapacious amorality. He stopped at nothing because he understood what it takes to get and wield power. Not much has changed in 550 years…

This play was written by William Shakespeare and directed by Liz Carlin Metz.
