This coming Autumn, Pentire will be producing a three week run of Shakespeare’s ‘Richard III’ at the Barons Court Theatre, from 31st October to the 19th November.
We are very excited to be taking our theatrical ventures to new heights with a three week London run and hope to produce a dynamic and engaging show.
Set in 1960s East End London, we have split the title role into two characters to echo the most prolific gangsters that ruled throughout the 60s – the Kray Twins. This new look on Shakespeare’s perennial tale of Machiavellianism sees a cast of 8 multi-role the desperate struggle for power within the Firm:

After months of gang violence, an uneasy and tenuous peace returns to the East End. With Edward on his deathbed, who will claim the inheritance of The Firm? His younger twin brothers may have their eyes set on leadership, but they are not alone: they will have to do everything they can to secure their rule against the threat of Edward’s daughter. Meanwhile, more gangs assemble south of the Thames in preparation for a bloody takeover to oust the Krays from their throne, one which will shake the criminal underworld of London to its core.
