March 20, Friday - April 4, Saturday Hamlet Isn't Dead Presents Richard III (Hamlet Isn't Dead)
8:00PM at WestBeth Artists' Community, 55 Bethune St, NY, 10014
Admission: $20   Tickets: At the door or http://r3hid.brownpapertickets.com/

Rival factions of the English nobility have been wrangling over the throne for several decades, and the struggle has left the country a war-weary shadow of its glorious past.  From this maelstrom emerges Richard, Duke of Gloucester, who is determined to wear the crown and is willing to pull any strings necessary to fulfill his raw unbridled ambition.

 As a malformed ‘bunch-backed toad’, Richard must overcome his physical limitations and rely on his wiles to bring his plans to fruition.   This production, directed by Brian Gillespie, will employ inventive puppetry, both shadow and physical, to create a world where Richard reigns as the master manipulator Producing this work is Hamlet Isn’t Dead, guaranteeing that it’ll be theatre you’ll love, whether you like it or not.
