Shakespeare's Richard III - Trailer

From Barter Theatre on Thursday, April 26th, 2018 in Arts & Culture & Videos
00:01:31
The deceptive and sadistic Richard, Duke of Gloucester, stops at nothing to become King. With intelligence, political brilliance, and dazzling use of language, he keeps his subjects and rivals under his thumb.... you might even start to feel a little pressure yourself. Don’t miss this engaging and refreshing production in an original adaptation by Barter’s Shakespeare expert.
What is new and unique for this production? The Director Katy Brown shares her excitement, “For Richard III, we didn’t want a polite, passive night of theatre— we wanted to give people an experience they’ve never had before. One of the wonderful things about Richard III is how he comes from where we least expect him and how he spends the show wooing the audience, so we are putting the audience in the middle of the action. Much of the audience will sit on stage, and the action will take place all around them and even up in the seats with the rest of the audience. At the Globe in London, the actors often come into the audience area and do entire scenes— this is Shakespeare as it was intended: surprising, visceral, fun and dangerous.”
