Richard III - Ralph Fiennes Stars in a Shakespeare Masterpiece
Beginning and ending at the Leicester carpark under which the remains of one of England's most famous kings were found, Rupert Goold's stunning production of Shakespeare's acclaimed play has arrived at the Almeida Theatre in London. Ralph Fiennes takes on the role of the notorious villain who murdered his way to the throne, supported by the incredible Vanessa Redgrave as Queen Margaret, making her debut at the theatre at the age of 79. Fiennes' central performance is framed by a fascination with past and present, fiction and fact, and how they all come together as one in this, the story of the evil king.

More About Richard III - The King Who Tried to Steal the Throne
One of William Shakespeare's most beloved plays, and the second longest in the canon behind Hamlet, it tells the story of King Richard III, the jealous brother of King Edward IV of England and his devious plan to snatch the throne. He must overcome a number of obstacles along his way though - including a whole court who oppose him, the princes who despise him, a living King and the most debilitating of all: a physical deformity that has left him with a severely curved spine. The foreboding opening line, "Now is the winter of our discontent", begins a reign of terror in which the royal takes down everyone in his way. Fate, however, has other plans and it isn't long before Richard's ghosts begin to catch up with him.
In a new production, directed by the Almeida artistic director Rupert Goold, the story is brought to life again with the additional ending at the Leicester car park, now famous for being the real king's burial site. Ralph Fiennes returns to the theatre after 16 years to play the notorious villain and is joined by iconic actress Vanessa Redgrave.
