Richard II

Richard II is a regal and stately monarch. He believes he is ordained by God, yet he is a weak and ineffective king - wasteful in his spending habits, unwise in his choice of counsellors, and detached from his country and its people. When he seizes the land of his cousin Henry Bolingbroke, both the commoners and the barons decide that their king has gone too far... This production reflects the play’s intense psychological struggle as well as a taut political drama.

No knee-bending to trendy revisionism, but rather a tour-de-force of Elizabethan drama —The Times
