A bit long but an awesome performance by all involved. It was a GREAT outdoor setting in a clean park with facilities. Didn't know that alcohol was allowed but I do now know for next time....

This is wonderful outdoor production of Shakespeare. One of the easier ones to follow. Kevin Theis is a wonderful (awful, murderous) Richard!

A fantastic experience. Many Shakespearean productions have a sort of "museum piece" quality. This one was more like a contemporary play! Well acted, energetic, characters believable!

Description

One of the consummate showmen in the Shakespearean canon, Richard III uses his intelligence and skills of deception and political manipulation to overthrow his older brother Edward for the throne of England. Richard III deftly navigates between humor, terror, eroticism, and courtly nobility in Shakespeare’s timeless tale of political ambition. Belinda Bremner directs after her highly praised production of Faith Healer last year. Kevin Theis stars as the title character and David Skvarla returns to the OPFT stage. Theis and Skvarla played the leads under Bremner’s direction in OPFT’s richly praised Of Mice and Men in summer 2010.
