The first theatrical production in over 80 years in the Theatre, John Haidar directs Tom Mothersdale as Shakespeare’s most notorious and complex villain, Richard III. This inventive new staging is a co-production between Headlong, Alexandra Palace and Bristol Old Vic, in association with Royal & Derngate Northampton and Oxford Playhouse.
Opened in 1875, Alexandra Palace Theatre was a home for spectacle and wonder - a marvel of Victorian engineering. Frozen in time since 1935 and now preserved in a beautiful state of arrested decay, an ambitious and complex restoration project has breathed new life into one of London’s best kept secrets.
