Richmond Shakespeare Society
-Richard II - OLD EVENT

by William Shakespeare, directed by Simon Bartlett

"... 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?
