About Richard III

Two time winner of Olivier and Tony Awards, actor, playwright and director Mark Rylance plays the title role in this acclaimed production of  Richard III, transferring in to the Apollo Theatre after an acclaimed sell out run at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Richard, Duke of Gloucester, is determined that he should wear the crown of England. He has already despatched one king and that king’s son; now all that stand in his way are two credulous brothers and two helpless nephews – the Princes in the Tower. And woe betide those – the women he wrongs, the henchmen he betrays – who dare to raise a voice against him.

Monstrous, but theatrically electric, Richard III is Shakespeare’s most charismatic, self-delighting villain, revelling at every moment in his homicidal, hypocritical journey to absolute power.

An all-male Original Practices production, Richard III includes clothing, music, dance and settings possible in around 1593.

‘SENSATIONAL DOUBLE BILL. MARK RYLANCE IS DAZZLING. A GLORIOUS STAR PERFORMANCE. SUBLIME’ Daily Telegraph

‘A GLORIOUSLY SUCCESSFUL TRANSFER. SUPERB. REMARKABLE’ The Independent 

‘SPELLBINDING. Mark Rylance gives a rich and comic performance’ Sunday Express 

‘A MOULD-BREAKING PERFORMANCE’ The Independent

‘Something truly special. A CROWNING GLORY’ Evening Standard

Mark Rylance was the first Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe in London, from 1995 to 2005. His most recent stage appearance was in the West End as Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron in the highly acclaimed production of Jerusalem, also at the Apollo Theatre and has previously won both Olivier and Tony awards for best actor.

Directed by Tim Carroll, the cast of Richard III also includes Samuel Barnett as Elizabeth, Johnny Flynn as Lady Anne and Roger Lloyd Pack as the Duke of Buckingham.
