In this farcical adaptation of Shakespeare's Richard III, Trey Dick is a natural born hunchback with a clubfoot and a host of personality disorders. He has never wanted to be an actor, but he has always had a burning desire to play Richard the Third. Well, now that his family has taken over a theater and launched their own rendition of the play will he get his chance? “No”, he tells us in the opening monologue that interrupts a rehearsal. His older brothers play both the lead and its understudy while Trey continues to play the part that was so helpful in taking over the theater in the first place: usher.
Taking us down a path eerily remnant of the one traveled by the Duke of Gloucester in the original play, Trey narrates the elimination of his brothers and others on his way to take the lead part.
