Shakespeare: Richard II (Royal Shakespeare Company)

David Tennant (Richard); Oliver Ford Davies (Duke of York ); Michael Pennington (John of Gaunt ); Nigel Lindsay (Bolingbroke ); Jane Lapotaire (Duchess of Gloucester);

Richard is King. A monarch ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man of very human weakness. A man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 years. RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs David Tennant in the title role of ‘a definitive production of a great play’ (Daily Mail).


"David Tennant gives a bravado performance of a multi-layered, complex and intelligent medieval king in Shakespeare's masterful history play." (The Daily Express)

"Gregory Doran's exceptional production is a rousing triumph." (The Observer)
