Richard III

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

John Haidar directs Tom Mothersdale as Shakespeare’s most notorious and complex villain, Richard III.

This inventive new staging is a co-production between Headlong, Alexandra Palace and Bristol Old Vic with Royal & Derngate Northampton and Oxford Playhouse.

Richard III is booking from 13 March 2019 until 31 March 2019 at the Alexandra Palace, London.


After decades of civil war, the nation hangs in the balance. Enter Richard, Duke of Gloucester, to change the course of history.

Richard was not born to be a king, but he’s set his sights on the crown. So begins his campaign of deceit, manipulation and violence – and he’s killing it.

Yet, behind his ambition lies a murderous desire to be loved.


The cast is led by rising star Tom Mothersdale – Tom’s numerous stage credits include John, Cleansed (National); Oil (Almeida); The Glass Menagerie, Boys, Romeo & Juliet (Headlong); Crave, 4.48 Psychosis (Crucible, Sheffield); The Cherry Orchard (Young Vic); King Lear (BAM, NYC/ Chichester Festival) and An Ideal Husband (West End). Screen credits include Peaky Blinders, Electric Dreams and Endeavour.
