Excitement is mounting in anticipation of this summer’s Shakespeare production of Richard III and you could be there for free.

The Hunts Post has teamed up with the Shakespeare at The George theatre company to offer one reader the chance to win a pair of tickets for a performance of their choice.

The production, directed by Lynne Livingstone, will be performed in the old courtyard of The George Hotel, in Huntingdon, and runs from June 26 to July 7 (with a break on July 1).

Richard III was written during Elizabeth I’s reign in 1591, Shakespeare puts a Tudor spin on the end of the Wars of the Roses and the rise of the Tudors. This political thriller is about the desire for power and the all-consuming corruption of absolute power, which is made even more timely by current world news.

Richard, Duke of Gloucester, sweeps aside anyone in his way to achieve his goal of kingship. However, retaining the crown will take him to the darkest of places and turn a country against him.
