December 19, 2018 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm


Richard III ( a one woman show)


Richard III.
An audience.
All the world is a stage.
What part will you play?

Pushing the boundaries of Shakespearean Performance, Brite Theater have re-imagined Richard III as a one- woman show. The fourth wall has been utterly obliterated as you the audience takes on the roles of all the other characters at Richard’s party in this intimate, exciting and moving production. Let Richard entertain you…but will you survive?

Adaptation by Kolbrun Bjort Sigfusdottir and Emily Carding
Direction by Kolbrun Bjort Sigfusdottir
Performance, props and poster by Emily Carding
A Brite Theater Production


‘Emily Carding and Kolbrun Bjort Sigfusdottir’s adaptation of Richard III is a smart, sparse, stripped back version of the text built around Carding’s utterly compelling performance.’ **** The Stage


“…an extraordinary performance from Emily Carding, a female Richard as bitter, damaged, ingenious and irresistible as any I’ve ever seen.” -Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman.
