Staten Island Shakespearean Theatre Company Presents:


By William Shakespeare

Richard III chronicles the cataclysmic end of one of history’s greatest villains. Richard is as charming as he is cunning. Being seduced by Richard’s shameless treachery is one of theatre-going’s most delicious guilty pleasures. Through scheming and seducing — and a few murders along the way — Richard secures the crown for himself…but can he hold it? Richard III is a fast-paced master class in political intrigue with a character that is as alluring as he is obnoxious.

September 14, 15, and 21, 22
