Richard III at the Great Barn

As a finale to both Saturday's adventures and our summer of Shakespeare, we had tickets to see Richard III performed by Titchfield Festival Theatre in The Great Barn.

In brief it was all rather excellent. Having seen Henry V performed in the guise of Victorian sailors and Henry VI performed in period costume, it was about time we saw a modern dress performance, in this case suits and ties/cocktail dresses and battle dress uniform as appropriate to the scene and characters. The barn was a little draughty but made up for that by looking stunning. The bar area is a bit of a work in progress, but that's all the more reason to support them.

Richard was a little unsubtle for my taste at times, but the rest of the cast were great and coped admirably with the police helicopter that was out and about in the area at the beginning of the second half.

I have more to say, but I'm planning a full Summer of Shakespeare round-up for Women and Words.
