Government is in disarray. The Lancaster king and prince are dead, and their family deposed. Edward of York and his wife Elizabeth have assumed the throne. Yet for the king’s third brother, Richard of Gloucester, envy, boredom, and ruthless wit serve as a collective personal catalyst to champion the throne for himself, alone. Shakespeare’s haunting history play spans the precipitous rise and fall of the infamous English tyrant. It serves as a cautionary tale about passivity, blind faith, and the fallout that comes from winning at all costs.
