Richard III
Syracuse Shakespeare-in-the-Park
Mike King, director

Price: Free (donations accepted)
Thornden Park Amphitheater
Ostrom Ave., Syracuse, NY

Richard III is considered the first of Shakespeare's great dramas. Shakespeare used multiple sources to create one of his most evil characters who certainly ordered the death of a king but may not have been quite as maleficent in real life as he is portrayed in the play. The question of the extent of his "deformity" is also widely debated. What do you think? Was he the hunchbacked monster with a shriveled arm or was he slightly to moderately stooped which made his arm appear shriveled? With the backdrop of the War of the Roses, the play centers on Richard's seizure of power in 1483, his short reign as king and his violent end on the battlefield searching madly for his horse.

$25 premium tickets include a front-row lawn chair seat, $10 of food of your choice from Beer Belly Deli, and Gannon's Isle ice cream at intermission.
