Event description

Description

Richard III.

An Audience.

Anything can happen.

What part will you play?

 

Pushing the boundaries of Shakespearean Performance, Brite Theater have re-imagined Richard III as a bold and engaging one-woman show. The fourth wall has been utterly obliterated, as you the audience take on the roles of all the other characters at Richard’s party in this intimate, exciting and moving production. Let Richard entertain you…but will you survive? Winner of all three awards at Prague Fringe 2015 and the Bobby Award at Edinburgh Fringe the same year.

As part of Skippko's 'Blank Canvas' scheme, Richard III is coming to York's old fire station on Clifford Road. It is free to attend but please bring cash to donate towards the performer's expenses.

“In a league of its own” ***** Broadway Baby


“It packs a powerful and subversive punch” **** The List

 

“Emily Carding’s coolly psychotic king has a Tilda-Swintonesque flair” New York Times

 

“[D]eserves to get a second look off-Broadway, and in my opinion Richard III (A One Woman Show) is one of the best Fringe shows in 2016.” Curtain Up, NYC
