Meeting Room A/B/C

Join The Shakespeare Project of Chicago for a theatrical reading of Richard III. Performers are members of Actors' Equity Association. Directed by Peter Garino. Artistic director Peter Garino. 

Considered by some to be Shakespeare’s greatest villain, Richard III ruthlessly murders his way to the English crown betraying family and friends along the way.  He was the last king of the House of York and the last of the Plantagenet dynasty. His defeat and death at the Battle of Bosworth Field, the last decisive battle of the Wars of the Roses, marked the end of the Middle Ages in England.
