Me & Richard 3 by Christopher Limber inspired by William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of King Richard III
Full-length, 65-80 minutes
2 females, 3 males
Reggie, a stuttering high school sophomore, longs to star in his school play: Shakespeare's Richard III. Fueled by a crush on the production's Lady Anne, Reggie carries out his own reckless version of King Richard's dangerous plot of ambition to ensure being cast in the title role. Aided by the ominous ghost of Richard III himself (who speaks in iambic pentameter), Reggie manages to bring down his school's star actor, but eventually he must face the consequences and wrestle with his personal demons.
"Christopher Limber's brief but pointed play is a refreshing offering for young audiences..."
