Shakespeare: Richard II

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery

"David Tennant gives a bravado performance of a multi-layered, complex and intelligent medieval king in Shakespeare's masterful history play."

The Daily Express

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 a dynastic and bloody civil war.

RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs David Tennant in the title role. David is joined in the Company by Oliver Ford Davies as the Duke of York, Michael Pennington as John of Gaunt and Nigel Lindsay as Bolingbroke.

Richard II was broadcast live to cinemas around the world on 13 November 2013 from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and is released on DVD and Blu-Ray on 6 May 2014.

The Blu-Ray disc also includes a commentary by Director Gregory Doran and Live from Stratford-upon-Avon Producer John Wyver, an interview with David Tennant in which he discusses his thoughts on the play and the character of Richard, and a film exploring behind the scenes of the production, giving an insight into the process of putting the play onto the stage at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and the logistics of filming the production for live broadcast.
