In comparison to Shakespeare's Richard III
, the Joker is a joke, Hannibal Lecter is 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, which continues its commitment to supporting theater artists at the start of their professional careers. Note: the setting and staging for this Richard III
is modern, but the play itself is not a revision.
