2007: Michael Boyd production


Michael Boyd's production of Richard II opened in the Courtyard Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon in August 2007.

The production was part of The Histories, a two-year project to stage all of Shakespeare's history plays using the same company of 34 actors playing all 264 roles.

The production was designed by Tom Piper, with the title role of Richard played by Jonathan Slinger. Roger Watkins played John of Gaunt and Clive Wood took the role of Henry Bolingbroke.
