Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Will Power’s retelling of Richard III opens at the Alliance Theatre, running through March 8, because nothing says “season of love” like a good old-fashioned story of manipulation and murder…

Ok, so maybe the Feb. 14 opening date is a coincidence. Nevertheless, we’ve snagged some rehearsal photos to get a peek inside the play’s Southeastern regional premiere. Check them out below!

About Seize the King

With his country’s throne empty, Richard knocks down threats to his ascension, fueling his insatiable ambition and paranoia. Even if he can be stopped — who can ensure a tyrant won’t rise in his place? Award-winning playwright Will Power delivers a propulsive and timely modern reinterpretation of Shakespeare’s Richard III that the San Diego City Beat described as “a sharp, lyrical script that blurs the line between the past and the present, while positing that ambition and depravity are not the province of merely one king, one country or one moment in time.”
