Simon Russell Beale plays William Shakespeare's Richard II. This visceral new production about the limits of power is directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins.
Ricahrd 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.
