Sunday 29th April, Shakespeare Schools Foundation presents a one night only fundraising event, the Trial of Richard III at the Novello Theatre.
Shakespeare’s King Richard III stands on trial for the murder of heirs, rivals, friends and wives. Court of Appeal judge LADY JUSTICE HALLETT will preside as judge with four of the UK’s top criminal barristers, JOHN KELSEY-FRY QC and SALLIE BENNETT-JENKINS QC forming the defence and the prosecution featuring IAN WINTER QC and JONATHAN LAIDLAW QC. A killer cast, including DAVID OAKES (ITV’s Victoria) will be called to the stand, whilst over 1,000 audience members, hosted by SSF patron HUGH DENNIS, will decide the fate of Shakespeare’s notorious villain.
