‘Alack I love myself.’ – Act V, scene 3
It’s time to meet Richard: the man, the myth, the monster. This new production of William Shakespeare’s play, Richard III will unfold at the Globe Theatre this summer, with Artistic Director Michelle Terry taking the title role.
Richard can taste power, but before he can take the throne and place the English crown on his head, he must first set a series of villainous events in motion that will threaten the lives of everyone around him.
Imagine living in a world where self-serving ambition is audaciously pursued and paraded, and murderous crimes are committed and subsequently confessed with irresistible charisma, charm, and impunity. Can anybody stop this pathological narcissist before the English nation is deceived and destroyed?
Elle While returns to the Globe to direct.
