Description

"A timely portrait of a country in chaos." - Evening Standard

"Few do quiet, eloquent despair as well as Russell Beale." - Daily Mail

This visceral new production about the limits of power stars Simon Russell Beale (National Theatre Live: Timon of Athens and King Lear) as Richar II, King of England, who 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.
