Richard III at the Tobacco Factory Theatre

The TFT has unreserved seating, so buy your own tickets and we'll meet in the Theatre Bar between 7 and 7:30

UPDATE:  To make sure that we can find each other, let's follow Tina's suggestion and meet at the far end of the Theatre Bar, next to the doors to the auditorium.  We can then join the queue to go in.

Watch the ruthless Duke of Gloucester charm, deceive and murder his way to power in this famously unhistorical history play.

The luckless brother drowned in a butt of malmsey wine, the two young nephews brutally murdered in the Tower, the kingdom offered for a horse – these are just some of the legendary moments in this most popular of Shakespeare’s English tragedies.

While he may have been less concerned to pursue historical truth than to please his Queen (Elizabeth’s grandfather had supplanted Richard as King at the Battle of Bosworth Field), Shakespeare still constructed one of theatre’s most gripping and convincing accounts of political intrigue and power-play.

Fantastic reviews from The Guardian, The Times, What's on stage, and many others:

    Just bought my ticket, looking forward - it's said to be very good! As I don't know any of you, shall we say at the far end of the bar, close to the theatre entrance?

      Hi Tina. Meeting at the far-end of the bar sounds a good idea. I've updated the description to include this. On Friday I'll send an e-mail with a contact telephone number.
