Details

Assume King Richard III survives the Battle of Bosworth Field and is brought back to London under arrest to stand trial. Although the new administration of King Henry VII has a variety of offenses to choose from, it is decided that Richard Plantagenet will be prosecuted only for the six most heinous acts of murder: those of the Lords Hastings, Rivers, Grey, and Vaughan, and, most horribly, of his two minor nephews, King Edward V, aged 12, and Richard, Duke of York, aged 9. As members of the audience, you will also serve on the jury of this case. Listen carefully to all the testimony and arguments, as the judge will call for a voice vote at the conclusion of the proceedings. Reception to follow.

THIS IS A FUND RAISER FOR BOTH THE VETERAN’S MUSEUM AND THE SAN DIEGO SHAKESPEARE SOCIETY. PLEASE COME AND HELP SUPPORT  OUR VETERANS AND THE SDSS PROGRAMS WE DO FOR OUR VETERANS. THANK YOU.
