"What do I fear? Myself?"

After decades of civil war, the nation hangs in the balance. Enter Richard, Duke of Gloucester, to change the course of history.

Richard was not born to be a king, but he’s set his sights on the crown. So begins his campaign of deceit, manipulation and violence – and he’s killing it.

Yet, behind his ambition lies a murderous desire to be loved.

Tom Mothersdale plays Shakespeare’s iconic villain, as Headlong returns to the Playhouse in this latest OP80 co-production, directed by Headlong Associate Artist John Haidar.

Written and performed by Christopher Wollaton, Brawn is a raw, emotional play exploring a young man’s isolating battle with body image, male identity and the cost of perfection.

  • Ian McKellen On Stage

    Tue 30 Apr - Wed 1 May

    A message from Ian McKellen: I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney. Live theatre has always been thrill...
