"Conscience is but a word that cowards use, devised at first to keep the strong in awe.” Shakespeare’s Richard III is a chilling story of power and ambition. His ruthless monarch resonates through the ages in DruidShakespeare: Richard III, a darkly comic production from Ireland’s Druid theater company and Tony Award–winning director Garry Hynes.
“You fall into the show as if into the folds of a dark dream.”– Irish Times
