"Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by this sun of York."
Shakespeare's portrayal of Richard III has strongly influenced Richard's reputation as one of the most colourful villains in British history. He is intelligent, engaging, gleeful and treacherous.
The Duke of Gloucester (the future Richard III) has his eyes firmly fixed on the crown, and will stop at nothing to achieve his aim. One by one he eliminates the obstacles that stand between him and the throne, including his two young nephews, who are murdered in the Tower of London.
But his tyranny does not go unopposed. The Earl of Richmond arrives from France to challenge him at the Battle of Bosworth Field. The night before the battle, the ghosts of all Richard's victims appear to him in a dream, forcing him to face his demons...
