With Evgenia Dodina as King Richard

Directed by: Itay Tiran

 

Why, I can smile and murder whiles I smile.

And cry “content” to that which grieves my heart.

And wet my cheeks with artificial tears.

And frame my face for all occasions.

 

"Every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way," Tolstoy wrote. "Richard III" is the story of such a family.

The royal offspring, raised in a family strife, a rejected, sickly, and fierce child turns into a malignant tumor that devours everything around him.

This family drama becomes a national tragedy in the play where the personal is inseparable from the political.

Centuries before Netflix, Shakespeare created the first serial killer. A magnificent freak, an eloquent and moving clown rapist who takes us on a thrilling journey of destruction. The wounded villain, who steps on corpses all the way to the throne, is a warning to all, a reflection of the terrible danger where the destruction of the family is followed by the destruction of the state.
