Event Details

The Music Box Theater and The Ultimate-TV invite you to an evening of theatrical excellence as THE RSC PRESENTS THE CINEMATIC PRODUCTION OF


RICHARD II is a story of power and plotting and is the first of four Shakespeare's plays about the House of Lancaster.  Richard II 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 dynastic civil wars that will last 100 years. 

Scottish actor David Tennant stars in the title role of Richard II and is directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran. David is joined in the company by Oliver Ford Davies as the Duke of York, Michael Pennington and John of Gaunt and Nigel Lindsay as Bolingbroke who give outstanding performances. 

Speaking about his return to work with Gregory Doran, David Tennant said: "Greg is steeped in Shakespeare...to work on those plays with someone who has the breadth of knowledge and experience, the instinctive understanding of what those plays are and what they can be is really optimum for me.  You feel secure that he will know the subject inside out and also secure that he'll be inspiring and instinctive and rather surprising".   

Of the role of King Richard, Tennant adds: "He's not a hero at all.  He's quite a complicated character. So I'm daunted by the prospect of doing it justice but very excited to get a chance." 

David Tennant’s portrayal of Richard II has received glowing reviews: 

 Daily Express - ★★★★★
David Tennant gives a bravado performance of a multi-layered, complex and intelligent medieval king in Shakespeare's masterful history play. Gregory Doran's production is superbly orchestrated.   This is a lucid, moving production packed with tremendous performances from Michael Pennington's John of Gaunt to Oliver Ford Davies's wonderfully bewildered Duke of York.


Evening Standard - ★★★★

David Tennant delivers a vivid, intelligent performance in Gregory Doran's clear, detailed and dynamic production. One of the year's hottest tickets.
