Filthy Rick

Presented by Melbourne University Shakespeare Company (MUSC)

MUSC’s Filthy Rick is a devised, collaborative, chaotic bastard of an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Richard iii. Filthy Rick takes the idea that Richard iii is filled to the brim with really bad people who persevere to the end in their relentlessly self-serving grasp for power and love and sex and fame. The earth, in revulsion of the humans, goes into revolt.
