The crown: the symbol of ultimate power and the goal of one of Shakespeare’s most extravagantly charming (and despicable) creations, Richard of Gloucester. As literature’s most infamous outcast seduces and bludgeons his way to power, who is complicit? Both a mesmerizing look at history and a mirror to our own turbulent times, Richard III stands as one of the Bard’s most indelibly entertaining, viscerally shocking dissections of the unholy marriage of greed and complacency.
