Take A Look! Richard My Richard Rehearsal Images

Fri 23 Feb, 2024

Take a look! Rehearsal images have been released for Richard My Richard (8th – 30th March) at Shakespeare North Playhouse!

Philippa Gregory’s playwright debut Richard, My Richard – a co-production between Shakespeare North Playhouse and Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds – is an innovative new stage play. Inspired by the real life of Richard III; which challenges the reputation of one of history’s most enigmatic characters: a passionate, tender portrait of the man in his time, and the women who determine his fate.  

With an explosion of tarmac, a Leicester Car park erupts and Richard III crashes from his lost tomb to meet the character who has ruined his reputation: History – the record keeper who doesn’t always have his mind on the task. 

Richard believes he has risen from the grave to heaven with an unstained conscience, and History has the awkward task of telling the Undead King that he is remembered as one of the greatest villains. History admits- he has his own doubts. He is far from a reliable narrator: his perspective is skewed, he has his favorites, some people he completely ignores. History overlooks people and stories. 

Funny, poignant, and underpinned by research, Richard’s secrets have not died with him, he rises up to tell us the story, his story, History. 

The full cast are Kyle Rowe as ‘Richard’, Tom Kanji  as ‘History’, Tyler Dobbs as ‘George/Buckingham’, Jennifer Matter as ‘Queen’, Tori Burgess as ‘Anne’, Laura Smithers  as ‘Margaret’, Matt Concannon as ‘Edward/ Thomas Stanley’ and Mary Savage as ‘Elizabeth’.
