Hull Truck Theatre and Northern Broadsides are delighted to announce that Mat Fraser will play the iconic role of Richard III in their forthcoming co-production at Hull Truck Theatre as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017’s second season – Roots & Routes.
Artistic Director and Richard III director Barrie Rutter says:
“Northern Broadsides and Hull Truck Theatre are thrilled to announce Mat Fraser in the title role of Richard III. He is an actor of scintillating physicality and vocal power. He joins a company of Broadsiders new and old, Hullensians aplenty, and will add his percussion skills to a company well noted for its musical invention. His return to the British stage as Shakespeare’s iconic villain heralds a shivering frisson of excitement.”
“This fantastic opportunity to play drama’s most famous disabled villain, and to put the visceral reality onstage of a “rudely stamped” actor in the famous character, is made even more exciting by having it be a Northern Broadsides and Hull Truck Theatre production under Barrie Rutter’s forthright direction. The honour of working with all the seasoned classic actors in the cast is one I hope to match with a deep understanding of a life lived differently, combined with a love of this intense violent drama, and joyously delivering the beautiful poetry of Shakespeare.”

Northern Broadsides and the New Vic Theatre join forces to bring their celebrated musical panache, acclaimed charisma and exuberant performance style to this swashbuckling tale of unrequited love set in the golden age of musketeers.
Cyrano de Bergerac, a brilliant poet and swordsman, finds himself deeply in love with his beautiful cousin Roxane.
Each day of his life is lived only for her – every poem he writes, every duel he fights. Despite his dash and his dare, Cyrano is afraid of revealing his true feelings certain she could never love him in return … for who would love a man with such an enormous nose?
A delightful evening of pure drama that will lift your spirits and make your heart ache.
Deborah McAndrew speaks about Cyrano, her love of writing, how she became a regular on Coronation Street and working with her husband and the Northern Broadsides team. Stage Door Johnny: Interviews By John Bowles
