Talking about the news Rob Myles said: “With Richard III bringing the first history cycle to a close, and being widely regarded as Shakespeare’s first masterpiece, we felt it was a great moment for us to celebrate everything TSMGO has become since it launched just six weeks ago. We’re thrilled that so many involved with the show so far were excited to return for this epic play. Ashley Byam reprises the role of Richard from Henry VI Part III, while actors from across the shows so far are returning in a host of different roles. Richard III has the most parts of any play, and this has given us our largest, most exciting cast ever. We’re hard at work in rehearsals, and we can’t wait to share this amazing play with audiences around the world.”

The livestreamed reading of Richard III can be watched live on Wednesday 29 April at 7pm BST here. Previous readings from the series are also available here.
