Richard III Kate Mul­vany’s Richard III is fas­ci­nat­ing. She brings a new per­spec­tive to this great vil­lain, not be­cause she is a woman (she plays the role as a man) but be­cause of the level of hu­man­ity that she al­lows to emerge, grad­u­ally at first, as Glouces­ter wades through blood and per­fidy to be­come King Richard. Can­berra Theatre Cen­tre, Civic Square, Lon­don Cir­cuit, Can­berra. Fi­nal Show Tonight, 7.30pm. $35$90. Book­ings: 1300 305 730. Drac­ula Shake & Stir’s crit­i­cally ac­claimed pro­duc­tion Drac­ula will be swoop­ing into the Can­berra Theatre Cen­tre. The pro­duc­tion be­gins when young lawyer Jonathan Harker vis­its Cas­tle Drac­ula to as­sist Count Drac­ula with pur­chas­ing a plot of land in Lon­don, un­aware of the Count’s sin­is­ter plans and blood­lust.
