Starring Pendleton as Henry VI and Matt de Rogatis as Richard III, the production explains how Richard III evolved into a tyrant. In Henry VI, Part 3, he pretends to be a subjugated good brother while secretly behaving with bloodthirsty abandon. Killing Henry, Richard then declares himself severed from a world of family and brotherhood; he stands alone in his quest for the crown.
In the text of Richard III, he is now the central character and villain of the play. Corrupt and sadistic, Richard stops at nothing to become king and, once there, keeps his subjects and rivals under his thumb. With the two texts combined, director Austin Pendleton's version of Richard III makes for a fascinating take on one of history's most notorious villains.
