Welfare society creates Richards.
Richards say one thing and do the other.
Richards give rise to trust, admire and envy.
Richards pose as martyrs.
Richards can provoke the weak to kill each other.
Richards can make people feel quilt for actions made by Richards.
You are with the Richards or against them.
Finally, there can be only one: Richard. Richard loves Richard.
Richard III by Theatre Vanha Juko poses the questions: where is the power, who belongs it to, who will take it and how it will be used. Can one have too much freedom? Should freedom be restricted to create common wellness? Does our time create Richards? Who are they? Can we see them? Are we ready to chop heads off to achieve the desired aims?
