School of Drama will present "Richard III" by William Shakespeare as the third production of New Visions 2020.
After a long civil war between the royal family of York and the royal family of Lancaster, England enjoys a period of peace under King Edward IV and the victorious Yorks. But Edward’s younger brother, Richard, resents Edward’s power and the happiness of those around him. Malicious, power-hungry, and bitter about his physical deformity, Richard begins to aspire secretly to the throne—and decides to kill anyone he has to in order to become king.
The production will be directed by MFA third-year director Pauls Macs, and feature: Hannah Adrian, Billy Berger-Bailey, Jazmyn DeAnna Boone, Yun-Chin Chang, Caroline Hertz, Racquel Jean-Louis, Ian Lawrence, Phil Lopez, Kasey O’Brien, Riley Jo Payne, Kyle Ryan, Mike Spara, and Jackie Theoharis.
