King Richard II at the old globe June 14th
“For God’s sake, let us sit upon the ground And tell sad stories of the death of kings." Please purchase your heavily discounted tickets in the middle A section of the outdoor Lowell Davies Festival Theatre!
Robert Sean Leonard (TV’s “House,” The Old Globe’s Pygmalion) returns to the Globe in the title role of one of the greatest of Shakespeare’s towering cycle of history plays. Convinced of his divine right to rule, King Richard acts recklessly and provides the canny Henry Bolingbroke an opening to seize the crown. Filled with magnificent verse and Shakespeare’s characteristic wisdom and insight, King Richard II is a deeply moving and insightful portrait of how the forces of history collide and combust to shape a nation’s political landscape. It’s a perfect play to begin the Globe’s 2017 Festival.
It's Shakespeare Season again! This year we'll be going to see King Richard II and Hamlet (August 16th). But first King Richard II.
