Richard II

by William Shakespeare
directed by Simon Bartlett

Richard II

"... England, that was wont to conquer others            

  Hath made a shameful conquest of itself"

A despotic ruler embedded in the past, surrounded by yes-men. A country taxed to the hilt,  led into futile wars and  feuds, and haunted by suspected murders. Opposition gathers round a rival in the hopes of new start.

Shakespeare's great lyrical tragedy shows a world on the brink - but is it of chaos,  or a new order?
