Autumn 2016

There’s a lot going on at Alarum this autumn.

Rewriting Richard

Today (Aug 22nd) is the 531st anniversary of the Battle of Bosworth; the death of Richard III and the start of the Tudor reign. We are very excited to be reviving Now is the Winter, Kate Saffin’s one woman retelling of Richard III through the eyes of Bess, a devoted servant, which uses Shakespeare’s own text to turn the story on its head. 427px-King_Richard_III

A new and striking reworking of Richard III ‘played with warm, realistic humour by Helen McGregor…thoroughly Shakespearean in spirit’ (The Stage)

We’re teaming up with Tell Tale Present with their alternative take: Uncle Richard for a one night showcase at the RSC on September 20th. Tickets will be on sale soon. Click on the image for more details about both shows.
