This fully mounted production of William Shakespeare's iconic play depicts Shakespeare's War of the Roses set in 1930s Chinatown. Evocative of old world South Jackson Street, we follow a society at the height of an explosion of art, music, prohibition, power struggles, culture clashes, and systemic politics. Amidst the chaos of personal loyalties and ambitions, one man emerges from the woodwork ready to sacrifice everything he holds dear (even his own humanity) in order to seize power. An outsider among outsiders, evil as much as he is sympathetic and tangible, we follow the rise and fall of Shakespeare's most notorious anti-hero in his quest for love, acceptance, and authority. With a multi-ethnic ensemble and a leading cast of actors of color this production of RICHARD III will be a moving, chilling testament to Seattle's own ghosts of tyranny in national politics.
