THE PROGRAM

Part of the Connect with Shakespeare series, the Director's Reading Explores the signature lines, major moments, and compelling characterizations of Shakespeare's lesser known works.



THE PLAY
Richard II is the first of Shakespeare's History plays.
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.
