This visceral, uncompromising and de-constructed version of Shakespeare's RICHARD III, by and with renowned Italian actor MICHELE SINISI presenting for the very first time this acclaimed version on a UK stage, will conclude the first part of Theatre at Draper Hall 2019 season with a modernistic bang.
‘In an empty room with a steel table in the centre and making the radical choice of reciting only the opening monologue of Richard III and in English, slowly Sinisi reveals a design which takes us straight to the heart of this character and this drama. Richard speaks of himself, his deformity, his inability to dance at court, and as he speaks, Sinisi lies on the table as if it were a cold mortuary slab, he hides behind it as if it were a prison cell or he uses it as a board on which he writes with red spray paint. This is the descent into the abyss of conscious violence.’
