Critically acclaimed Front Foot Theatre presents its dystopian take on Shakespeare’s most charismatic, tour de force villain, Richard III, in a new production running for a strictly limited season at London’s Cockpit Theatre from 14 October to 4 November 2017.

PROOF – Tabard Theatre

Playwright David Auburn‘s best-known work, Proof, won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2001, along with a multitude of other awards. It’s been produced on Broadway and in the West End, and made into a Hollywood movie starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins. So it’s no surprise that I had pretty high expectations going into Front Foot Theatre’s new production, directed by Sebastien Blanc. But I still wasn’t expecting to be quite so powerfully affected by this emotional rollercoaster of a play, particularly as it deals with two subjects I don’t know much about: mental illness and mathematics.
