Richard III by the People's Shakespeare

9-11 May 2013



With the first major events of the Cookham Festival over, here's what the audience of the People's Shakespeare had to say about Richard III...


'Richard III exceeded all expectations - it was a fabulous production. Something that really impressed me was how slickly managed the whole thing was in terms of movement of people, props, furniture, etc on and off set. The casting was great from top to bottom. It truly was a team performance, with every character feeling as important as the next regardless of how many lines they had.'


'Congratulations to everyone involved in tonight's performance. It hit all the right notes - gripping, funny, menacing, moving - and included some truly top-quality moments. A remarkable and memorable achievement.'


'A sincere thank you. It was a 10 ticket for a 100 performance - a clever and wise adaption of old Bills words. It was wonderful, the whole thing. God knows what you would have done with a bigger budget!'


'Many, many congratulations to you and all your fellow actors and actresses on such a superb, brilliant, fantastic and so thoroughly professional performance last night.'


'Congratulations Richard and to all involved - I thoroughly enjoyed the play - even better than 2011. Hope we won't have to wait until 2015 for another People's Shakespeare.'
