What happens when a person who has been punched down upon all their life, finally punches back? Bridgerton star Adjoa Andoh shifts the lens on Shakespeare’s most iconic villain Richard III, questioning what we think we know of him, in this blistering new production. With an original score inspired by traditional folk music from Yeofi Andoh, this rejuvenated staging sets kingdoms and castles amongst May Day parades and Morris dancing (from Bridgerton choreographer Jack Murphy) in a rural Cotswold setting. Following her acclaimed production of Richard II at Shakespeare’s Globe, Adjoa Andoh now follows the rise of Richard, Duke of Gloucester, in this powerhouse Rose Original Production full of songs, dancing and a dash of murder.
