Shakespeare's immortal tale of ambition, lust, and murderous treachery will be brilliantly updated and brought to life by The Rustic Mechanicals this spring. A savage civil war between two royal families has just concluded. But even as the newly installed King Edward takes the reigns of power, his ruthless younger brother Richard sets in motion a monstrous scheme to claim the crown for himself. Enlisting the aid of equally duplicitous allies in the court, Richard embarks on a merciless, single-minded campaign of betrayal, seduction, and cold-blooded murder to achieve the goal that has obsessed him all of his tortured life.
