Thank you for visiting this page. Online ticket sales for "RICH" have closed, but you can still get one at the door tonight at the Celebration of Whimsy Theatre, 21-A Clinton Street, NYC. Hope to see you there! -Lawrence Evans


November 2012 - The skeletal remains of King Richard III, one of England's most ruthless kings, are found beneath a car park in Leicester, England.

No marks of a hunchback, withered wrist, or other disfigurements are found. The only deformity is a slight case of scoliosis, meaning that the way Shakespeare wrote about him, is wrong.

February 2013- Lawrence Evans started asking why this was. Why would Shakespeare write about him in that way, giving him false deformities? Also, why was there a puncture wound in his buttock, after death, where a sword was plunged into his backside as a sort of humiliation wound? Could there be some correlation between that and homophobia? Was Richard III gay?

June 2013 - Christopher Staley was looking for a new project, and found it with RICH. Lawrence asked him to come aboard and adapt and direct the play into a new work, exploring these questions and trying to find some answers. Through Shakespeare's words, and our own advanced intelligence, we will find out what this 'withered wrist' was all about.

November 11, 2013 - The staged reading of the most intriguing story of the season: "RICH"
