Richard is King. A monarch 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. RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs David Tennant in the title role.

Richard II is the first production in a new cycle of Shakespeare's History plays, directed by Gregory, that will be performed over the coming seasons.

David is joined in the company by Oliver Ford Davies as Duke of York, Michael Pennington as John of Gaunt and Jane Lapotaire as Duchess of Gloucester.

The RSC Ensemble is generously supported by THE GATSBY CHARITABLE FOUNDATION and THE KOVNER FOUNDATION
