Bare Bones Shakespeare presents Richard III
Into a kingdom of turmoil comes Richard of Gloucester. To some he is the one honest politician on the hill, the only man willing to drain the swamp and tell it like it is. Really he’s a sociopath. A morally bankrupt, social media obsessed tyrant willing to lie, betray, and slaughter children, all to get what he truly wants. The crown. What kind of society could allow such a transparently evil man to rise to the highest position of government? And is that society really so different from our own?
Bare Bones Shakespeare will present a hard, but entertaining look at the modern political climate through the lens of the Shakespearian history of King Richard III.
