William Travis stars as Richard III in a production of Shakespeare's drama that is touring Rotherham parks

Richard III is Shakespeare’s most charming and dangerous villain. He’s set his sights on becoming king and will do and say whatever it takes.

The play stars actor William Travis, who has appeared in Coronation Street, This Is England and Where The Heart Is.

An accomplished professional cast is supported by some up-and-coming local talent, including Rotherham schoolchildren.

The show tours Rotherham parks from September 25 to 29.
