Richard III is one of Shakespeare’s earliest works, first performed around 1593 – and the title character with his unbridled, single-minded amorality is still fascinating and compelling to this day. Staged by Thomas Ostermeier at the Schaubühne Berlin this production is perfectly cast and features Lars Eidinger as Richard.
The programme contains nudity, violence and smoking scenes, adult content and coarse language.
This thrilling production of Richard III was performed in many cities around the world and has been widely acclaimed by major cultural media.
“A thoroughly modern game of thrones. Lars Eidinger is a visceral, manipulative monarch in Thomas Ostermeier’s explosive German-language production.” (The Guardian)
“And in the title role, the astonishing Lars Eidinger is a bogeyman guaranteed to haunt your nightmares for weeks to come.” (New York Times)
“Die große Eidinger-Show.” (Die Zeit)
“Un «Richard III» d’exception en Avignon.” (Le Monde)
