About Richard II
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.
The Royal Shakespeare Company return to the Barbican with a residency that will culminate in January 2016 with a major theatrical event to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death: KING AND COUNTRY: Shakespeare's Great Cycle of Kings - a complete 4-play season cycle of Richard II, Henry IV Parts I & II and Henry V in repertoire.
