About Richard III

Starring Bridgerton’s Adjoa Andoh

Acclaimed stage and screen actress Adjoa Andoh, who stars as Lady Danbury in Netflix’s hit series Bridgerton, directs and stars in this thrilling new production of Shakespeare’s Richard III.

Following her critically-acclaimed production of Richard II at Shakespeare’s Globe, Adjoa Andoh uses her own childhood experiences growing up in rural England in the 1960s, to explore how pathologising the body and ascribing evil intent due to a person’s physical appearance, can wear away at the soul.

Richard III is playing at the Rose Theatre Kingston from 26 April 2023 to 13 May 2023.
