Acclaimed actor Mark Rylance returns to the Globe 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. 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.


 

About Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

This replica of the Shakespeare's 16th century theatre, reconstructed just 200 yards from its original site, is the brainchild of American actor and director Sam Wanamaker. Built in wood and thatch, using techniques from 400 years ago, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre opened in 1996. More about Shakespeare's Globe Theatre
