Period and Historical
If there's anyone out there convinced that Shakespeare isn't for them, then this daring and powerful adaptation of one of the Bard's most famous works will rid them of their pre-conceptions. Re-styling the vicious Richard III as a 1930s fascist dictator, it's the story of a ruthless prince who will spill any amount of blood to seize the English throne. Four people stand in his way - his brothers Clarence and King Edward, and Edward's two young sons. So one-by-one, Richard has them removed, blind to anything except his ambition.
Shakespeare is relocated to modern Manhattan - but the play keeps its original dialogue, in this adaptation starring Ethan Hawke.
