  • Overview

    Looking for the next Game of Thrones adventure? Richard III explores the source material for George R. R. Martin’s epic series in a fresh way. While the country celebrates the gift of peace, Richard, Duke of Gloucester, languishes in discontent. Faced with physical challenges and the psychological effects of an unhappy childhood and a lengthy civil war, this character upon whom GOT’s Tyrion Lannister is based must use his brain to solve problems his body cannot. Yet, rather than settle for second best, he saddles his ambition and makes use of all his weapons, even his physical deformity, to achieve his own desires. No bonds, barriers or blood relationships can deter Richard from his quest for the crown.

    This twisted tale of a malcontent's rise to power features strong notes of vengeance and manipulation. A flavorful assault on the palate finishes with the bitter aftertaste of the consequences of betrayal and an element of evil. With live music and a contemporary feel, this Richard will rock your world.

    Performances will be presented in the garden of the 1897 Poe House. Food will be available for purchase, as well as tea from Winterbloom, beer from Hugger Mugger brewery, seasonal cocktails, and wine. Outside food and drink are not permitted.

    For these outdoor performances, you should bring your own seating or choose from rental chair and quilt seating options. Indoors, seating is provided, along with an optional rental seat cushion. All rental options are subject to availability.

    The 1897 Poe House offers limited street parking, with additional parking available across the MLK Freeway, at Arsenal Park.

    Changes due to inclement weather will be announced on STS' website and Facebook page.
