RSC artistic director, Gregory Doran directs actor David Tennant in the title role of Richard II.  This is the first production in a new cycle of Shakespeare's History plays that will be performed at The Royal Shakespeare Company over the coming seasons.  

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.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.David Tennant is mesmerising in the first show of Gregory Doran's six-year plan to present all of Shakespeare's works.  A beautifully crafted, richly detailed production.   Guardian   ★★★★
