Shakespeare's classic, Richard III, is given the star treatment at Trafalgar Studios as Martin Freeman takes up the titular role.
Last seen on stage in Clybourne Park in 2010, Freeman's better known credits include television shows The Office, Sherlock and Fargo, as well as his continuing role as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit. Now he takes on the task of depicting the iconic rise and reign of Richard III of England, the scheming centre of this masterful historical play.
Marking the first production in Jamie Lloyd's second season for Trafalgar Transformed, this promises to be a provocative production of the astonishing power play.
