    Theater: Public Theater / Delacorte Theater in Central Park, New York, NY,

    Synopsis: 

    One of Shakespeare's most charismatic villains cuts a scorched-earth swath through the politicos, power-mongers, and even family members who stand between him and the crown. But before King Richard III can enjoy the fruits of his ill-gotten gain, something stirs that freezes him in his tracks: conscience. Shakespeare's bracingly theatrical, surprisingly moral exploration of violence and its consequences is a production of The Public Theater's Mobile Shakespeare Unit.

This scaled-down staging has been presented at prisons, homeless shelters and other sites in underserved neighborhoods before returning to the company’s home base on Astor Place.
