After two years of searching, MA's Shakespeare & Company has found a new space -- The Duffin Theatre and property including 63 acres, a 500 seat theatre and a 1,200 seat theatre. Richard III, William Shakespeare's tale of the power-hungry hunchback king, will inaugurate the new space, through Aug. 1.
One of the most famous studies of evil in the English language, Richard III tells of the Yorkists having finally seized power from the Lancastrians -- but Richard has his own plan to get the throne, leaving many dead on his way.
The acquisition of The Duffin Theatre marks the fifth space for The Company. Shakespeare & Company artistic director, Tina Packer will direct.
