RICHARD III – HERO OR VILLAIN?
FROM 14TH JULY 2018 – 2ND SEPTEMBER 2018*
Now is the winter of our discontent, Made glorious summer by this son (see what we did there) of York.
The York Dungeon is returning to a time under the rule of Richard III (where he wasn't under a car park); but what kind of a King was he? Was he the hero of England, well-loved and just the victim of bad PR by the Tudors who hated him (especially that Shakespeare bloke)? Or is there more truth to his stage portrayal? Was Richard III the villainous, nephew-murdering usurper, who did unspeakable things to those that opposed him?
It’s time to make history; it’s time to decide for good, is Richard III a Hero or Villain?
