Tangle, in association with MAST Mayflower Studios, will present a Shakespeare classic at the Swindon Arts Centre.

This special production of Richard the Second will be performed on Tuesday, 25 October, at 7.30pm.

Tangle says it will be bringing the immortal Bard's work up-to-date in distinctive Southern African Township style.

A spokesperson for the production said: "With an original score of Zimbabwean music and song, Tangle’s new multicultural production offers a fast, powerful and fresh take on this state of the nation play, while celebrating the excellence of globally talented artists whose multi-national voices are at the centre of the work.

"Richard The Second continues Tangle’s long-term commitment to championing African Caribbean artistic excellence, presenting classic plays in new and surprising ways to audiences of all kinds."

The recommended age for audience members is 12 and over.
