1502…after the death of his elder brother, Prince Arthur at Ludlow Castle, an eleven year old Henry VIII has a great deal to learn about his ancestors if he is ever to become King. But when he begins to question the few survivors of the Wars of the Roses, including his mother, Elizabeth of York, they discover that when it comes to her uncle, Richard III, no two tellings of the tale ever seem to be quite the same.
Originally commissioned for Leicester Guildhall and Museums to mark the reinterment of King Richard III in 2015, Uncle Richard has received critical acclaim.
