In Richard III, Shakespeare creates a self-proclaimed villain battling to obtain and retain the crown. A ruthless Machiavellian, Richard seduces and slaughters his enemies and relatives, becoming so tainted with blood that “sin will pluck on sin.” Michael Kahn directs this gripping tragedy, one of Shakespeare’s earliest and most enduring successes.

This production was part of Shakespeare in Washington, a feast of theatre, music, dance, art and film presented by more than 40 organizations.
