Bristol Old Vic - Richard III
On 4 April drama students from Years 12 and 13 took a trip to The Bristol Old Vic to see a thrilling performance of Shakespeare’s ‘Richard III.’
After a relaxing lunch we took our seats in the beautiful theatre. A modern, gripping take on a renowned play had the audience leaning over the original 18th century seating and recoiling in disgust of the callous king.
Tom Mothersdale who portrayed Richard gave a supercharged performance, the persona of a disadvantaged but good-natured man, unveiled into a heartless monster. A royal banquet for the emotions that will live long in our memories.
