A hierarchical state dominated by a ruler obsessed with his divine right to rule. A country increasingly subject to corruption, mismanagement and in-fighting. A popular but inexperienced rival to the current structure, led on by sharper minds.

Headlines from 2017 or Shakespeare using the past to parallel both his own time... and ours….?

Richard II contains some of Shakespeare’s finest verse and is the first in the great cycle of history plays covering the period from Richard II’s deposition in 1399, to the death of Richard III at Bosworth in 1485. This is a play of political change, of foreboding. But is it also a play of a man’s discovery of his own humanity – tragically too late.

Come and discover this fascinating drama in Richmond Shakespeare Society’s production at their home base of the Mary Wallace Theatre
on Twickenham Embankment.
