Film & Theatre - The Tragedy of King Richard the Second
About the Event
Richard II, King of England, is irresponsible, foolish and vain. His weak leadership sends his kingdom into disarray and his court into uproar. Seeing no other option but to seize power, the ambitious Bolingbroke challenges the throne and the king’s divine right to rule. Simon Russell Beale plays William Shakespeare’s Richard the second, broadcast live from the stage of the Almeida Theatre in London to cinemas.
