Sherlock Holmes meets Richard III

Popular co-stars of BBC drama Sherlock, Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch, are both set to play Richard III in Shakespeare’s second-longest play. Cumberbatch will star as Richard on the small screen in an upcoming BBC adaptation of the play, whereas Freeman will be taking on the role in Jamie Lloyd’s upcoming theatre production at the Trafalgar Studios in Whitehall.

This production will run from the 1st July to the 27th September 204 as part of the second Trafalgar Transformed season, which will involve an offer of £15 Monday tickets in a bid to encourage first-time theatregoers to the show. Tickets are as of yet unavailable for purchase, but if you are interested, you can visit and register your details for exclusive ticket sale information.
