The set was carefully being moved into the Trafalgar Studios yesterday, there's just a week to go before the Jamie Lloyd-directed, Martin Freeman-starring Richard III opens. Here are five things we know about the production:
1. They won't be playing down the murder:
3. It's modern dress (ish) - am I getting a hint of 50s/60s colouring from those suits?
4. Martin Freeman is going to be scary (kind of thought he'd rock this):
Jamie laughed when he recalled the first rehearsals, watching Martin act some very, very, very scary moments on stage.
5. There is an office-like setting with rehearsal pics showing Martin Freeman sat behind a desk and what looked like a huge reddish wood desk was among the bits of set being unloaded from the removal trucks at the theatre yesterday.
