  • Synopsis

    Richard II

    We’re thrilled to be screening the first ever live cinema broadcast from the stage of the Royal Shakespeare Company. We kick-start an exciting new season of three RSC plays with the sellout production of Richard II (the fastest selling show in the RSC’s history), with David Tennant in the title role and directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran.

    Richard is King, 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.
