A tale of heads of state falling from power, opportunists, powerbrokers and propagandists. Shakespeare’s Richard II is a monarch ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man and a weak one at that. His reckless policies include burdening his citizens with taxes, and confiscating the land and wealth of noblemen. His vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 years, while he paves the way for his own deposition by Henry Bolingbroke. This visceral new production, staged at the Almeida Theatre, London, stars Simon Russell Beale as Shakespeare’s narcissistic, arbitrary king. The play is subversively reimagined and directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins (Little Revolution, Absolute Hell). With designs by ULTZ.
