We encourage you to meet the cast: https://bit.ly/3nGwZsf and consider interviews because of the unusual nature of the production and the good news nature of this story. Creating this production using actors scattered in different places, unable to rehearse together or perform together, presented some unique challenges and opportunities. This show will both be classic live Shakespeare, and also unlike any live production you and your audiences have seen. Many of the actors first performed Richard III in the 2017, purely live production presented by East End Mobile Theatre. Note: While the production is free, donations are encouraged as they will support next summer’s free
