The Almeida Theatre makes its live screening debut in Gainsborough next week with Shakespeare’s Richard III, starring Ralph Fiennes and Vanessa Redgrave.

War-torn England is reeling after years of bitter conflict. King Edward is ailing, and as political unrest begins to stir once more, Edward’s brother Richard – vicious in war, despised in peacetime – awaits the opportunity to seize his brother’s crown.

Through the malevolent Richard, Shakespeare examines the all-consuming nature of the desire for power amid a society riddled by conflict.

Olivier-winning director Rupert Goold’s searing new production hones a microscopic focus on the mythology surrounding a monarch whose machinations are inextricably woven into the fabric of British history.

Through the malevolent Richard, Shakespeare examines the all-consuming nature of the desire for power amid a society riddled by conflict.

The screening at Trinity Arts centre is on Thursday, July 21 at 7pm.

Tickets are £12 and £10 on 01427 676655 or http://bit.ly/29nC8CC
