Richard III - Martin Freeman featurette
Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) has made available a new featurette for their forthcoming production of Richard III, starring Martin Freeman – the inaugural production of Jamie Lloyd’s second season at Trafalgar Transformed.
Gina McKee (Di & Viv & Rose, King Lear, Ivanov, Our Friends In The North, Notting Hill) will play Queen Elizabeth alongside Freeman (Clybourne Park, The Hobbit, Sherlock, Fargo) as Richard III. The production will run from July 1 to September 27.
In the aftermath of civil war, Richard, Duke of Gloucester, makes a hateful resolution to claw his way to political power at any cost. A master of manipulation, subtle wit and beguiling charm, he orchestrates his unlawful ascent by spinning a ruthless web of deceit and betrayal.
His staunch ambition soon begins to weigh heavy, as the new ruler finds himself utterly alone and steeped in dread, forced to answer for his bloody deeds and face the horrifying consequences.
