“Conscience is but a word that cowards use,
Devised at first to keep the strong in awe”

Politics is a game for Richard, a wickedly funny hunchback on a bloody campaign to seize the English crown. He may be backstabbing and manipulative, but he is so mesmerizing you can’t look away. For the fractious ruling elite, a deal with the devil seems a small price to pay to gain power — until the game has consequences. Founding company member Christopher Gerson stars as the charismatic villain in Shakespeare’s fast paced thriller.
