Richard IIIAcclaimed actor Mark Rylance returns to the Apollo Theatre and to the celebrated role of Richard III - the determined Duke of Gloucester - who battles ruthlessly to reach his place on the throne. Heartlessly betraying anyone that comes between himself and the crown - including the king, the king's son, his two brothers and his defenceless nephews (the legendary Princes in the Tower) - Richard III is truly Shakespeare's most despicable bad guy: a scheming, Machiavellian hunchback who is arguably one of the most villainous characters in history. Ten years have passed since Rylance last played the charismatic villain, a role he took on during his time as Artistic Director of the Globe. This current revival will adhere to the Original Practices - meaning it will be performed by an entirely male cast - as it would have been in Shakespearean times. Clothing, music, choreography and settings will be explored as if it were being performed in 1593. Olivier and Tony Award-winning Rylance will be especially busy this season as he can also be seen appearing as Olivia in Twelfth Night, which runs concurrently at the same venue as part of Shakespeare's Globe's 'The Play's the Thing' season.

 

About Apollo Theatre

The first West End theatre of the Edwardian Age, the Apollo has a pleasingly over-the-top design that takes in facades, statuary, and a gypsy coat-of-arms that was intended to bring good luck. Vertigo sufferers may wish to know that the balcony at the Apollo is said to be the highest in London, a design that was intended to improve the acoustic for musicals. More about Apollo Theatre
