Richard II in rehearsal. 

Beset by problems at home and abroad, a capricious king is forced to relinquish his ‘hollow crown’. As his supporters abandon him and his power trickles away, Richard reflects with startling eloquence on the disintegration of his status and identity. 

Adjoa Andoh and Lynette Linton direct the first ever company of women of colour in a Shakespeare play on a major UK stage, in a post-Empire reflection on what it means to be British in the light of the Windrush anniversary and as we leave the European Union.  

Richard II opens in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse on 22 February.

When the renowned Globe Theatre in London burns to the ground during a 1613 performance of William Shakespeare’s play Henry VIII, the 49-year-old playwright, poet and actor returns to his home in Stratford-upon-Avon to face a troubled past and his disregarded family.

Wanted to see Ophelia, but the screening I went to was canceled due to technical difficulties (i.e. the projector carked it). Hoping it will be out on BluRay soon

The production performs at Duke of York’s Theatre for a limited engagement that opened on July 11 and will close on November 3rd (if I’m not mistaken). Go see it if you are able to.
