The Windsor Globe are back this summer with a new production of Shakespeare’s Richard III. This gritty drama will be presented in our found space, pop up theatre by a cast of professional actors. The production will also use trans-media to delve into the darker sides of Richard's brain, allowing the mechanics of the Machiavellian mind to be expressed clearly in a modern context. This production will be bold and slick, building on our excellent reputation for delivering vibrant, immediate Shakespeare shows.

Working in partnership with creative junction, RBWM, ACE and Haybrook College, this festival is breaking new boundaries and taking bold creative steps into the mind of one our most controversial monarchs…
