Richard III.
An audience.
All the world is a stage.
What part will you play?

Pushing the boundaries of Shakespearean Performance, Brite Theater have re-imagined Richard III as a one- woman show. The fourth wall has been utterly obliterated the audience takes on the roles of all the other characters at Richard's party in this intimate, exciting and moving production. Let Richard entertain you... but will you survive?

★★★★★ (Broadway Baby) - ★★★★ (The List) - (★★★★) The Mumble - "Outstanding Show" (FringeReview)

Brite Theater return to Bristol with their acclaimed production of Richard III (a one-woman show) adapted from Shakespeare's masterpiece by artistic director Kolbrun Bjort Sigfusdottir and actress Emily Carding. After receiving all three awards at Prague Fringe and The Bobby Award at Edinburgh Fringe in 2015 the production continues to tour internationally. This is the company's third time at Bristol Shakespeare Festival, previously performing original work Shakespeare in Hell at The Island in 2014 as well as Richard III (a one-woman show) last year at The Rope Walk.

Other Shakespeare shows include King Lear, Coriolanus and original mash up My Only Love Sprung from My Only Hate. The company also produces new writing, including Bitter Sweet, and Chet Baker, Love by Kolbrun Bjort Sigfusdottir and most recently devised piece (Can This Be) Home? which premiered at Plymouth Fringe earlier this summer.
