Resplendent in black tie, showered in glitter, the victorious Yorks celebrate. Damaged and disfigured, Richard finds no peace among this elite to whom he has never fully belonged. Murdering his way to the throne, exposing conflict and mistrust in his wake, the outsider makes us complicit, addressing us directly to reveal his manipulative plans.

Commanding centre stage in this full-throttle, raucous adaptation, Shakespeare’s antihero displays a repugnant magnetism difficult to resist.

Performed in German with English surtitles

Ages 14+

Barbican [Off West End]

“Explosive, sharp-edged portrayal of Richard... His treatment of those around him is both chilling and compelling... Superb.”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“A tremendous picture of a provisional, morphing individual... The intensity scarcely dips: helter-skelter action; visceral vim.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“Brilliant take... A thrilling performance by Eidinger and a flawless piece of work from Ostermeier.”

David Nice (Arts Desk)
