About the eventShakespeare’s King Richard III is standing trial for the murder of heirs, rivals, friends and wives, and you're invited to join the jury for what promises to be a landmark case in UK history.
This part-scripted, part-improvised event will unite a top judge, leading criminal barristers and a killer cast of celebrity performers on stage for one night only.
Jury Foreman Hugh Dennis will host the evening and actors will take the stand to provide evidence, including David Oakes (ITV's Victoria) as Duke of Buckingham.
Court of Appeal judge Lady Justice Hallett will preside. However, the outcome of the trial rests in your hands, as it will be the audience who vote on whether to convict or acquit the King.
This unique fundraising event is in aid of Shakespeare Schools Foundation.
