Seven Tyrants Theatre, Vancouver’s Jessie Award winning independent theatre company, presents King Richard and His Women, a new adaptation of Shakespeare’s Richard III by Vancouver based playwright Camyar Chai.

Daniel Deorksen as King Richard. Seven Tyrants Theatre.

King Richard and His Women

When: April 11 – 19, 2019
Where: Tyrant Studios (1019 Seymour Street, Vancouver)
Tickets: $29 available online now »

The production, the third of their season, is directed by Camyar Chai and stars Leanna Brodie as “Elizabeth”, Ghislaine Dote as “Anne”, Sandra Ferens as “The Duchess” and Linda Quibell as “Margaret” with Daniel Deorksen as “King Richard”. The production features scenography by Camyar Chai, sound and music design by Daniel Deorksen and lighting design by David Thomas Newham. The play will be performed at Tyrant Studios, the company’s newly renovated performance venue located above the historic Penthouse Nightclub. Recently converted by the company to a studio theatre, these upstairs rooms once hosted exclusive parties and performances by music legends like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr, and Frank Sinatra.

In this modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘History of King Richard lll’, the Wars of the Roses are transformed into a war of the conscience. Wounded in battle and in an altered state between life and death, the titular character is confronted by the women he has loved, hated and destroyed. Together, the ghosts of his deeds create a dark and fantastical world in which he, Richard, is called to account. Shakespeare’s beautiful language spoken through an absurdist allegory of corrupting power that is sure to resonate with the times.
