ANTIC DISPOSITION PRESENTS RICHARD III BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

17 Jul 2017 - 18 Jul 2017

Both performances begin at 7.30pm.

The Wars of the Roses are over. The Yorkist Edward IV rules England. But the king's brother, Richard of Gloucester, is in no mood to join the celebrations.

With murder, deceit and dark humour as his weapons, Richard overcomes scheming nobles, treacherous assassins and vengeful enemies to seize the crown.

But as the body count rises, he soon finds that a throne founded on blood offers little security . . .

Following their recent acclaimed production of Henry V, award-winning theatre company Antic Disposition return to the spectacular setting of Ely Cathedral for two special performances of Shakespeare's classic black comedy.

Tickets: £25, £35 (Under 18s £10 off) available at: www.anticdisposition.co.uk
