“Bad is the world; and all will come to nought, when such ill dealing must be seen in thought.”
Sport for Jove’s Richard III returns after a hugely successful season in 2023. Seen through the eyes of Elizabeth I, this production gives students an incredible insight into the play and when it was written.
This production is an essential tool for students to come to grips with this play’s innate theatricality and plethora of challenging characters when comparing it to Al Pacino’s Looking for Richard. Don’t let your students miss this opportunity to see and hear the play live.
Peace at last in the land of the free!
But while a gruesome war has ended and the world dances, one dangerous mind is still in the trenches, his language weaponised and targeted on every point of weakness around him. He will take no prisoners on his rampage to the top.
Don’t miss this exciting production of one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays, Richard III - another example of the exceptional clarity and accessibility for which the company has become renowned.
The production includes a detailed 30-minute lecture on the play by director Damien Ryan and Q&A with the students to deepen their relationship to the work.
