"Richard III" (Wayward Productions): Thought-provoking imagery stays true to classic

Wayward Productions presents Richard III.  Duplicity and murder are Richard’s tactics in his quest for power.  Yet, instead of 1480’s in the royal court of England, it’s 1970’s in a bikers‘ dive bar.  Richard’s quest is not to be King of the country.  This Richard wants to be the monarch of the Warlock Motorcycle Gang.
