Richard II

Matinees on 29 October and 4 November at 3.00pm
Mary Wallace Theatre


A leader convinced of his divine right to rule.  A popular but inexperienced rival, led on by sharper minds.  A country increasingly subject to corruption, mismanagement and in-fighting.  A foreign war used as a distraction from domestic turmoil.

Headlines from 2017 or Shakespeare using the past to parallel both his own times   ... and ours...?  This lyrical tragedy contains some of his finest poetry in a vivid evocation of a world in flux.

Presented by Richmond Shakespeare Society
