Students at Honiton Community College have been busy rehearsing for their production of Richard III.

The work of revered wordsmith Shakespeare will be brought to life by students at Honiton Community College - in a modern day adaptation of one of the writer’s most famous works.

Students have been busy rehearsing for their production of Richard III, with sixth former Alex Jackson taking on the title role. The play follows the scheming and murderous ways of the monarch, who will kill anyone who stands between him and the crown.

Bethany Hibbert will play Lady Anne Neville.

The director and head of drama, Marc Culwick said: “We welcome you to a warm festive evening with a touch of Shakespeare, fantastic songs, a bite to eat, and if you wish, a little something from the bar to help wash the drama down.”

Performances will be held on December 7 and 8, at 7pm. Tickets can be purchased from the college reception.

There will be food and a licensed bar.
