Almeida Live: Richard III

Almeida Live: Richard III
Drama, Filmed Theatrical | 2016 | NR. 3hr
CAST: Ralph Fiennes, Vanessa Redgrave DIRECTOR: Rupert Goold Theatrical screening

The Almeida Theatre makes its live screening debut with an explosive new adaptation of Richard III, directed by Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold with Ralph Fiennes as Shakespeare's most notorious villain and Vanessa Redgrave as Queen Margaret.
War-torn England is reeling after years of bitter conflict. King Edward is ailing, and as political unrest begins to stir once more, Edward's brother Richard - vicious in war, despised in peacetime - awaits the opportunity to seize his brother's crown.

Through the malevolent Richard, Shakespeare examines the all-consuming nature of the desire for power amid a society riddled by conflict. Olivier-winning director Rupert Goold's (Macbeth, King Charles III) searing new production hones a microscopic focus on the mythology surrounding a monarch whose machinations are inextricably woven into the fabric of British history.

Cast includes: David Annen, Joseph Arkley, Tom Canton, Daniel Cerquiera, Simon Coates, Susan Engel, Ralph Fiennes, James Garnon, Mark Hadfield, Scott Handy, Finbar Lynch, AislĂ­n McGuckin, Joseph Mydell, Vanessa Redgrave, Joshua Riley, Joanna Vanderham
