Mark Rylance will be starring as the much-maligned king in William Shakespeare's "Richard III".
The play tells the story of the evil Richard, Duke of Gloucester, who took Edward IV's two young sons into custody on the old king's death. When the two princes disappeared shortly after, Richard claimed the throne for himself, and woe betide anyone who dared to raise a voice against him!
