Shakespeare's intoxicating tale of ambition, power, betrayal and family politics is thought to have been written around 1593. The lead character is as seductive now as he was then, and the 2012 discovery of Richard's remains prove that his power to fascinate holds fast centuries later. Be warned: this 'History' play is not always entirely historically accurate... and yet, it is Shakespeare's deviation from accepted events which gives us the richness and texture of one of his most enduring, thrilling and endlessly pertinent plays of all time.
