'R3: Richard III: The Anatomy of a Villain'

When: Sat., July 29, 6 p.m. 2017

As the Vermont Shakespeare Festival tells it, “Shakespeare’s Richard III is the tale of a ruthless, power-crazed royal who lies and murders his way to the highest seat in the land.” If that doesn’t grab your attention, it’s difficult to imagine what would. Theater buffs and casual picnickers alike can experience the action and intrigue when VSF serves up a staged reading of the Bard’s historic drama on the Shelburne Museum’s Circus Lawn. Scripts in hand, six actors deliver lines that, while written in the 16th century, still resonate today. Bring a chair and some snacks for this al fresco presentation.

Price: $15-20; free for kids under 12 with a ticketed adult.
