Richard III

Groundbreaking new company Metachroma Theatre presents a fresh take on a classic tale

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Joel Miller
A Metachroma Theatre Production

In the Segal Studio from September 19th – 30th , 2012

Featuring one of world literature's most insidious and manipulative characters, Richard III is a powerful piece, as horrifying as it is fascinating. William Shakespeare's classic and timeless tragedy journeys through the psyche of one man who will stop at nothing to serve his ambition. Defined by appearance and demonized by society, Richard is ever the outsider. In a whirlwind of horrible deeds and unspeakable acts, Richard fights to claim his position as monarch at all costs.

Metachroma Theatre addresses the under-representation of visible minority actors in Canadian Theatre, challenging current perceptions by telling stories with a diverse cast in order to normalize the presence of these artists on stage.

Starring: Quincy Armorer, Glenda Braganza, Tamara Brown, Lucinda Davis, Julie Tamiko Manning, Mike Payette, Jamie Robinson and Warona Setshwaelo.

Support for the 2012-2013 Studio season is provided by

Quincy Armorer, artistic director of Black Theatre Workshop, stars as the title character in the St Lawrence Shakespeare Festival's production of Othello.  The concept of the production looks interesting which "will tie in with the bicentennial celebration of the War of 1812."  The Festival is in Prescott, between here and Ottawa.  For more information: www.stlawrenceshakespeare.caPaul Flicker
