King Richard II

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Erica Schmidt

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.
