Richard III.
An audience.
Anything can happen.
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 bold and engaging one-woman show. The fourth wall has been utterly obliterated, as you the audience take 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?

Emily Carding

Emily Carding is an actor, writer and artist based in Devon, UK. She worked in theatre for a few years after graduating from Bretton Hall in 1997, and then focused on her writing and artwork whilst raising her daughter, now 13. After graduating with an MFA in Staging Shakespeare in 2015, she has been working consistently in both Film and Theatre, most notably in the award-winning Richard III (A One-Woman Show) with which she is still touring, both in the UK and internationally.

Richard III (A One Woman Show) was created by director Kolbrun Bjort Sigfusdottir and performer Emily Carding during a theatre residency in Reykjavik, Iceland in November 2014 and premiered at Prague Fringe in May 2015, winning every award – unprecedented in the history of Prague Fringe. The show went on to tour various fringe festivals throughout the UK, including Edinburgh Fringe where it earned rave reviews from critics and audiences and a coveted ‘Bobby’ award.

“The power of Shakespeare’s poetry is on full display here, making Richard’s every line a tribute to his toxic brilliance…this production is a masterpiece”- Michael Calcott, Fringy Bits

“an astonishing take on Richard III…Somehow, with the most minimal of materials, this show is complete theatre” Fringe Review

“I have seen several performances of Richard III; Laurence Olivier and Ian McKellen on film, and Kevin Spacey at the Old Vic, but Emily Carding’s portrayal of the king who murders his way to the English throne is in a league of its own.” ***** Broadway Baby

“a brilliantly simple but chillingly effective concept…it packs a powerful and subversive punch” **** The List

“Its open audience involvement and relentless energy may make this Richard III most exciting Shakespeare currently in the city. This show could be a headlining act on the West End.” ***** Theatre Bubble
