Richard Iii

Season 47, Episode 13 of 13

Tony Award nominee Robert O'Hara (Slave Play, The Public's Barbecue) brings his sharp wit and story-telling genius to Central Park's Delacorte Theater with a bold new production of Richard III starring Danai Gurira, whose many film and television credits include Treme, Avengers, The Walking Dead and Black Panther. One of Shakespeare's most indelible villains, Richard is determined to be King, using his brilliant words and dark charm to conceal his dismantling of government and justice to satisfy his lust for power as he manipulates, kidnaps or kills all who stand in his way. This masterful dive into the muddy middle between political genius and violent power grab opened Free Shakespeare in the Park's 60th Season with piercing relevancy and electrifying drama.
