Richard IIISherlock star Martin Freeman stars as Richard III in Jamie Lloyd's production of Shakespeare's history drama, appearing alongside Gina McKee (Di & Viv & Rose, King Lear, Ivanov, Our Friends In The North, Notting Hill) who plays Queen Elizabeth. Freeman plays the conniving king as the War of the Roses continue to rage. The Duke of Gloucester schemes to get his hands on the throne of England and romance the widow Anne. Richard III marks the start of Jamie Lloyd's second season at Trafalgar Transformed, a string of productions at Trafalgar Studios which go beyond the stage with an array of extras including debates, masterclasses and reheased readings. It also offers star performers at bargain prices - all tickets for Monday performances are just £15, half of which are offered to students and first-time theatregoers.

About Trafalgar Studios

The Trafalgar Studios are two venues housed within what was London's Whitehall Theatre. The building itself is Grade II listed, and is an excellent example of simple, unadorned Art Deco style. The interior, however, is spectacular, with complex, cubist designs and sweeping curves of moulding and ironwork. More about Trafalgar Studios
