Event description
William Shakespeare's classic tale of ambition, power, and murder.

About this event

Our 2022 Season kicks off with the classic tale of a manipulative and corrupt prince who will stop at nothing to become king. Promethean Ensemble and esteemed guest artists look forward to bringing this frighteningly relevant story to life.

The crown: the symbol of ultimate power and the goal of one of Shakespeare’s most extravagantly charming (and despicable) creations, Richard of Gloucester. As literature’s most infamous outcast seduces and bludgeons his way to power, who is complicit? Both a mesmerizing look at history and a mirror to our own turbulent times, Richard III stands as one of the Bard’s most indelibly entertaining, viscerally shocking dissections of the unholy marriage of greed and complacency.

PROOF OF VACCINATION AND THE PROPER WEARING OF MASKS ARE REQUIRED FOR ATTENDANCE.
