Staging our world: Richard 3

The woman behind the man

One of Shakespeare’s most brutal rulers returns to the Sydney stage in Bell Shakespeare’s latest production of Richard 3.  Bell Shakespeare’s Artistic Director Peter Evans brings a new boldness to one of history’s most famous villains, with award-winning actor Kate Mulvany in the title role.

Hosted by Richard Glover, the Library has partnered with Bell Shakespeare to celebrate this unique production with a special panel discussion.  Cast members from Richard 3 and leading academics will debate and explore the power and the politics of gender roles as imagined in this production. They will discuss the role of women in Shakespeare’s plays, the history of women playing men, and investigate what Richard 3 means in our modern world and political climate.

* *Your confirmation email to this panel discussion will include a promotional code that you can use to purchase discounted Premium and A Reserve tickets to the production of Richard 3 at the Sydney Opera House.
