'From forth the kennel of thy womb hath crept
A hellhound that doth hunt us all to death.'The Yorkists have emerged victorious from the civil wars and Edward IV wears the English crown. But Edward's misshapen brother Richard harbours kingly ambitions and will stop at nothing to achieve the throne. Brilliantly manipulative and entirely amoral, the hero-villain Richard is one of Shakespeare's greatest roles.Richard III is played by David Troughton. Saskia Wickham plays Lady Anne, Margaret Roberston plays Queen Margaret and Philip Voss is Buckingham.
