Cheap Richard III tickets at the Rose Theatre
This autumn the Rose stage will be transformed into a battleground for The Wars of the Roses, a gripping distillation of four of Shakespeare’s history plays, directed by Trevor Nunn, one of the world’s leading Shakespearean directors.
A spectacular theatrical event not seen since it was first produced at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1963 by Peter Hall & John Barton, The War of the Roses trilogy of plays covers one of the most tumultuous and intriguing periods of British history - the 15th Century conflict between the House of York and the House of Lancaster for the throne of England.
Through these plays Shakespeare examines the very essence of human conflict. A tale of feuding families, murderous kings and adulterous queens, scheming and betrayal, revolts and battles, The Wars of the Roses chronicles the final struggle for power in medieval England.
See all three plays in a day, see the three plays over three days, but don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to see Shakespeare at his very best
So often presented as a standalone drama, the third play in the cycle is the climax of Shakespeare’s great chronicle of the fifty-year conflict between York and Lancaster, between roses white and red.
Ruthlessly ambitious Richard, wicked, mischievous and still in his twenties, murders and betrays his way to power. The tortured, tragic Margaret – abused by Richard as a ‘withered hag’ – is the self-same beautiful princess whose story we have followed throughout these plays. The ghosts that haunt the king before the final decisive Battle of Bosworth Field are all the leading characters of this epic story, returning for their final utterances.
With crushing finality, we witness the very last part of Shakespeare’s gripping saga, the conclusion of his game of thrones.
