NATIONAL THEATRE (LIVE) presents The Tragedy of King Richard II by Shakespeare, broadcast live from the stage of the Almeida Theatre in London.
Simon Russell Beale plays Richard II the irresponsible, foolish and vain King of England. His weak leadership sends his kingdom into disarray and his court into uproar. Seeing no other option but to seize power, the ambitious Bolingbroke challenges the throne and the king’s divine right to rule.
This visceral new production about the limits of power is directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins.
