‘Richard III’ at the Maynardville Open-Air Festival

The Maynardville Open-Air Theatre in Cape Town is one of the city’s most anticipated arts festivals. One production which is currently staging is Richard the Third which is based on Shakespeare’s historic dark comic tragedy. Directed by Geoffrey Hyland and starring award winning actor Alan Committie, this enthralling tale goes on the roller coaster ride of the brutally brilliant and charming Richard of Gloucester as he stages one of the most calculated power grabs of all times to become the new king of England. The production forms part of the second Maynardville Open-Air Festival, featuring a programme of music, dance, comedy and more. But to tell us more we are joined from Cape Town by Brian Heydenrych, festival Producer joins us now welcome to morning live.
