About Teenage Dick
A modern, darkly comic re-telling of Shakespeare’s Richard III set in the most treacherous of places– high school. Bullied because of his cerebral palsy, Richard is willing to crush his enemies in order to become senior class president. But all the scheming, manipulation, and revenge plots force him to ask the age-old question: is it better to be loved or feared?
"Teenage Dick" was commissioned and developed by The Apothetae, a company dedicated to the production of works that explore and illuminate the disabled experience, and premiered at Ma-Yi Theatre Company in association with The Public Theater.
