Richard’s cerebral palsy might make him late to class, but it doesn’t stop him from winning the girl, or mastering the art of deceptions based on his Machiavellian belief that it’s better to be feared than loved. Student council secretary, and “third in line” to the purse strings wielded by the student president, Eddie, Richard finds the mere idea of power going to his head. Loosely inspired by Shakespeare’s Richard III, Teenage Dick is a bubbling cauldron of youthful tragedy.
Relatable: If you liked They Don’t Talk Back, Othello, or God of Carnage, you’ll love Teenage Dick.
Teenage Dick is presented by Perseverance Theatre.
