DruidShakespeare: Richard III continues our exploration of Shakespeare's kings and re-unites the acclaimed creative team and members of the Druid Ensemble who worked on DruidShakespeare: Richard II, Henry IV (Pts. 1&2) and Henry V, in 2015. Shakespeare gives us one of the great villains in Richard III, in a chilling and darkly comic story of power and ambition.
