Frome Festival presents


The eve of the battle of Bosworth Field.

King Richard the Third is troubled by visions, reconciling him with his past, and foretelling his doom.

The premiere of a new musical specially written for the Frome Festival and produced by The Merlin Theatre and Kairos Theatre. “The Haunting of Richard the Third”, commemorates the tenth anniversary of the discovery of Richard’s body beneath a car park in Leicester and the 30th Anniversary of the ECOS ampitheatre next to the Merlin Theatre.

Written by Festival Director Martin Dimery with music by David Hynds and Martin Dimery
