Shakespeare’s most charming villain is back as West Yorkshire Playhouse gets set to stage a new production of Richard III.

Following his acclaimed performance as Alan Bennett in last year’s Untold Stories, Reece Dinsdale will return to the playhouse in the starring role as Shakespeare’s king.

Directed by the Playhouse’s Associate Director Mark Rosenblatt- theatre goers should expect the production to be a dark, funny version of dirty politics.

Richard III will run from 25 September  to  17 October.
