Richard III at Maynardville Open Air Theatre Festival

    Maynardville Open-Air Theatre
  • Duration

    140 mins

The annual open air Shakespeare production turns it’s attention to one of the Bard’s most deliciously dark and delightfully droll tales – the tragedy of King Richard the Third. The infamous hunchback anti-hero (played by award winning actor/comedian Alan Committie) takes the audience on a journey through palace politics, coruscating corruption and macabre machinations in order to become the new king of England.

Award wining Shakespeare director Geoffrey Hyland returns to Maynardville after the triumph of Twelfth Night (2017) to helm this comic-tragedy. With a cast of 16, this production promises an action-packed, theatrical rollercoaster romp as it depicts the Machiavellian rise to power and subsequent short reign of King Richard the Third.
