History is always written by the victor. After Henry Tudor defeated Richard III at the battle of Bosworth, Tudor Historians created the elaborate fiction of a deformed usurper who schemed and murdered his way onto the English throne. But who was the real Richard III?

Drawing on contemporary sources, unsullied by Tudor propaganda, ‘Good King Richard’ dramatises for the very first time, the true events which propelled Richard onto the throne of England and two years later, led to his downfall. This is a tale of murder, betrayal, rebellion, revenge and political intrigue, starting with the drowning of the Duke of Clarence in a butt of Malmsey and ending on the eve of the Battle of Bosworth.

A century after Richard’s death, the testimony of his greatest enemy, Cardinal John Morton provided the basis for a celebrated play which would colour attitudes to Richard for four centuries. ‘Good King Richard’ finally sets the record straight.

    Yes, at last, not that as a Ricardian I don’t already know the truth, but it is good to see a new work, hopefully telling the truth.
