RU Forum Series: Richard III

Additional Information

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Professor Deborah Mogford

King Edward is on the throne, England is at peace, and all is well. But don’t worry – it won’t be that way for long because Richard is “discontented.” Gripping and outrageous, Shakespeare’s Richard III is the tale of a ruthless, powercrazed Machiavellian who lies and cheats his way to the highest seat in the land through charm, deception, and force of presence. If House of Cards or Game of Thrones enthralls you, then the evil “doings” of Richard are for you.

Admission is free, but tickets are required. Please contact the Box Office at 815-226-4100 for additional information. To request and reserve tickets, please email BoxOffice@rockford.edu.
