ABINGDON, Va.- " Shakespeare’s “Richard III” is shaking things up at Barter Stage II with rearranged seating. In this performance, running through May 5, the theater has been altered to allow the audience to be right in the middle of the action.

In this Shakespeare classic, Richard, Duke of Gloucester, will stop at nothing to become King. With his intelligence, political brilliance, and dazzling use of language, he climbs his way to power.

This production has been adapted and directed by Associate Director Katy Brown who said, “I’m not after a well-behaved night at the theater. I’m after something more fun and more liberating than that. I want to put you in the middle of the action and invite the unexpected among us.” Sean Maximo Campos, Mary Lucy Bivins, Andrew Hampton Livingston and more of Barter Theatre’s fan favorites bring this show to life.

Shakespeare’s “Richard III” is made possible in Memory of Gary Kimbrell by friends.

To purchase tickets, visit bartertheatre.com or call 276-628-3991. Tickets for all performances of Shakespeare’s “Richard III” begin at just $20.
