Seattle Shakespeare hosts a FREE livestream reading of Richard III. This audio presentation revisits the Seattle Shakespeare Company and upstart crow collective production of Richard III and features most of the original cast of the 2018 production of the play. There will be a Question and Answer session following the presentation.
Don’t underestimate the last son of the mighty royal York family. Richard is as charming as he is cunning. Through scheming and seducing (and a few murders along the way), Richard secures the crown for himself…but can he hold it? Attempting to thwart his ill-gotten rise to power are some potent women who envision hope for their country in a new generation of leaders. This gripping portrait of a cunning villain’s rise and fall from power features a diverse female and non-binary cast.
