It’s Richard III in a car park... in Gravesend.
PUBLISHED: 10:54 16 February 2013
Honing in on the huge interest in the ill-fated king’s skeleton being found buried in a Leicester car park, a theatre group have pulled off a publicity stunt for their own version of the Shakespeare play.
Rob Forknall, director of Kent-based group The Changeling, donned a royal costume and cosied up on the gravel of a Gravesend car park.
He will be among other fans of the Bard performing Richard II in the open air this July, set in a gothic world or murder plots.
Tickets for the performance at Nurstead Court, in Meopham, on July 30 and August 8 are available now from the Woodville.
