Spring this year has proved to be a wonderful season of Tasmanian theatre and the trend is set to continue later this month when the Hobart Repertory Theatre Society presents the magnificent Richard III.
Directed by Andrew Casey, this timeless tale of jealousy, ambition, manipulation and destruction is often labelled one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays.
Audiences will be treated to an exquisite and powerful portrayal of one man’s Machiavellian rise to power, with the King of England’s brother – Richard – murdering and manipulating members of the royal family in his quest to capture the throne.
Richard III is a dramatic combination of brutality and comedy – you will be taken on this unforgettable journey inside The Playhouse Theatre in Hobart – an intimate setting that showcases high-quality theatre to both the local public and guests from around Australia and the world.
The play will be open from Friday October 21 to Saturday November 5 at 20:00, with a Saturday Matinee performance on October 29 at 14:00.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $22 for concessions, $20 on Tuesdays and the same for people in a group of ten or more.
