The first play from world-renowned author Philippa Gregory. A co-production from Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds and Shakespeare North Playhouse in association with Daniel Schumann. Directed by Katie Posner.

With an explosion of tarmac, Leicester City Car Park erupts and Richard III crashes from his lost tomb to meet the character who has ruined his reputation: History – the record keeper who doesn’t always have his mind on the task.

Richard believes he has risen from the grave to heaven with an unstained conscience, and History has the awkward task of telling the Undead King that he is remembered as one of the greatest villains. History admits- he has his own doubts. He is far from a reliable narrator: his perspective is skewed, he has his favourites, some people he completely ignores. History overlooks people and stories.

Funny, poignant, and underpinned by research, Richard’s secrets have not died with him, he rises up to tell us the story, his story, History.

Best-selling novelist Philippa Gregory’s (The Other Boleyn GirlRichard My Richard is a passionate, tender portrait of man in his time, surrounded by the women who determine his fate.

This is a Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds co-production with Shakespeare North Playhouse, in association with Daniel Schumann and directed by Katie Posner.

 

In-the-Round Stage Layout

When you select your tickets – the auditorium plan will look slightly different to normal as we are converting our theatre ‘in the round’. This means that the stage will be built in the middle – where the Pit seating currently is.

In place of seating in the Pit, there will be raked seating on the area where the stage would normally be. The Dress Circle will remain as usual.

This will be an amazing audience experience offering great views of the stage, all round.
