First photos released of Greg Hicks and the cast rehearsing Richard III at Arcola Theatre.

Greg Hicks is celebrated for his acclaimed performances as Macbeth, Julius Caesar, Coriolanus and King Lear at the Royal Shakespeare Company and Coriolanus at The Old Vic.

Now he’s returning to Shakespeare after many years to play the one major character left – RICHARD III in the gripping tale of a ruthless, power-crazed misogynist who lies and cheats his way to the highest seat in the land.

The full cast includes Jane Bertish (In The Depths of Dead Love, The Print Room), Jim Bywater (Clarion/The Cherry Orchard), Jamie de Courcey (Netflix series The Crown), Femi Elufowoju Jr, Annie Firbank (Oresteia, Almeida), Peter Guinness (DaVinci’s Demons), Mark Jax (Pravda, NT), Paul Kemp (Peter Pan, RSC), Sara Powell (The Crucible, Old Vic), Georgina Rich (Rabbit Hole, Hampstead), Matthew Sim (Saint Joan, NT).

Richard III runs from 11 May 2017 until 10 June 2017 at the Arcola Theatre.
