News: Cast announcement for Richard III in his burial place

This summer, award-winning theatre company Antic Disposition present a thrilling new production of Shakespeare’s Richard III, which will be staged in six of England’s most historic cathedrals and London’s ancient Temple Church this summer.

Joining Antic Disposition for the first time, Toby Manley will take on the principal role of Richard III in this darkly comic drama. The cast also includes Antic Disposition regulars Chris Courtenay, William de Coverly, Alex Hooper, Charles Neville, Jill Stanford, Louise Templeton and Bryony Tebbutt, alongside company newcomers Joe Eyre, Robert Nairne and Jess Nesling.

The tour will include two special performances in Leicester Cathedral – the first production of Richard III to be performed in the building since the king’s remains were discovered buried under a nearby car park and reinterred in the Cathedral in 2015. Antic Disposition’s Richard III also visits Ely, Peterborough, Gloucester, Bristol and Salisbury Cathedrals before concluding at Temple Church in London.


Richard III plays a variety of locations across the country from 14 July – 9 September 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
