Richard III

Sacred Fools Theater
1076 Lillian Way Los Angeles

Richard III by William Shakespeare, directed by Ellen Geer – The story of the most charismatic villain ever to command the stage. Daunted by a life of physical challenges, Richard weaves a fiery web of intrigue, removing all obstacles – and all people – that stand between him and his designs on the throne of England. Shakespeare's delightfully bloody and brutal history follows the corrupt path of a twisted man with equally twisted ambitions as Richard manipulates, marries and murders his way to the top with unmatched charm and zeal.

LA Weekly - Not Recommended

"...A minimalist staging of a play by Shakespeare puts the onus of success exclusively on the strength of the performances. So it is with director Ben Rock’s production of Richard III, which crashes on the shoals of mediocrity from the start."

Stage and Cinema - Somewhat Recommended

"...The obvious excellence of these actors in search of a director merely underscores that director’s lack of interest in cadging nuance from them, or from his text. The fault lies not in Rock’s stars, therefore, but in himself."

Jason Rohrer - Recommended

"...Director Ben Rock guides nineteen actors through this massive work with careful regard for authenticity and reverential consideration to the Bard’s intent. The result is an absorbing presentation with riveting performances from the uniformly excellent cast."
