About The Production

After a long civil war between the royal family of York and the royal family of Lancaster, England enjoys a period of peace under King Edward IV and the victorious Yorks. But Edward’s younger brother, Richard, resents Edward’s power and the happiness of those around him. Malicious, power‐hungry, and bitter, Richard begins to aspire secretly to the throne—and decides to kill anyone he has to in order to become king.


This is Shakespeare’s Richard III like you have never seen before! Following a centuries long sleep under a car park in England, the spirit of King Richard III awakes when he is pulled from the earth, bringing a warning to those who wish to follow in his footsteps. Ghostly incarnations tell Richard’s story of envy, betrayal and murder.


The play is being directed by Leeward Theatre instructor Ashley DeMoville as part of the Leeward Community College Semester of Shakespeare events. This production contains adult themes and images ‐ audience discretion is advised.

About Our Theatre

The Leeward Theatre was built in 1974 as a gathering place for art and culture on the Leeward Community College campus, serving the greater Leeward O`ahu area.

About Semester of Shakespeare

The Leeward CC Semester of Shakespeare is an annual series of workshops and lectures dedicated to deepening and animating students’ and the public’s engagement with the works of William Shakespeare. This year the Literature and Theatre faculty have teamed up and organized events around Shakespeare’s history play Richard III.


To kick things off, Leeward CC Theatre instructor and veteran actor and director, Betty Burdick, presented a lecture titled "Prove a Villain" on Tuesday, March 29, 1:30-­2:45 p.m., in BE­108. During this lecture, Betty examined Shakespeare's representation of Richard III against archaeological evidence made available by the recent rediscovery of the maligned monarch's remains under a church parking lot in Leicester.


Ashley DeMoville, Leeward CC Theatre instructor and director of Richard III will be facilitating a workshop on what is involved when directing a play. “Staging Richard” will be presented on April 12, 1:30­-2:45p.m., in the Leeward Lab Theatre (TH3). Learn how the choices you make about the way to play a scene affect the interpretation. ‘Staging’ doesn’t just mean the set or stage itself; it’s everything you do onstage to bring the drama to life. Come see how alternate staging, cutting, and acting affect the meaning in a piece.


These events are free of charge and open to the public.
