In comparison to Shakespeare's Richard III, the Joker is a joke, Hannibal Lecter's a peckish vegan and Patrick Bateman is just another investment banker with questionable taste in music. In the whole of English literature, there is no character as cruel -- or as compelling -- as the hunchbacked, perpetually scheming Duke of Gloucester. Desperate to clutch the crown of England (no matter how bloodstained his hands become), Richard is the black heart of a thrilling drama filled with intrigue, sword fights, murder and ghosts. Now this stark and powerful morality tale receives an intimate staging by The Empty Theatre, continuing its commitment to supporting theater artists at the start of their professional careers.

“Six degrees of separation” refers to the idea that, if a person is one link away from each person they know, and two links away from each person who is known by each of the people they know, then everyone is at most six degrees away from any other person on Earth. The term was popularized by John Guare’s intriguing, insightful exploration of celebrity and the games we play to elevate our significance.
