Richard II

by William Shakespeare

 

THE PLAY

King Richard believes he has been ordained by God to rule England, but he is surrounded by men who would prey on his weakness. Spoiled by fortune and more poet than monarch, his vanity begins to divide his country and send it into tumultuous and horrible civil war. But even as he loses all his power and worldly possession, does Richard gain something greater? Robert Quinlan (Macbeth, 2013) returns to direct this lyrical, profound and moving production, which will feature artistic director Kevin Rich in the title role.
