Richard and Buck on stage in Teenage Dick.

Richard III, but Make it High School

5 min 8 mths

Shakespeare’s Richard III meets Dear Evan Hansen in Woolly Mammoth’s first in-person production since the start of the pandemic. 

Teenage Dick tells the story of Richard, a high schooler with cerebral palsy, who is running for Senior Class President at Rosedale High School against the popular high school quarterback, Eddie, and the overachiever, Clarissa. In this modern day story inspired by the characters of Shakespeare’s Richard III, Richard uses nefarious tactics to get the competition out of the way.
