R II Captures Raw Essence of Shakespeare's Richard II
$8.50 - $17*
$17 - $34
A thousand TV pundits talking for a thousand years could never match the complexity and depth of Shakespeare's political commentary. His X-ray vision cuts through party platforms and historical events and looks right into the unchanging hearts of men and women. His insights have never been more revealing or more relevant than in Richard II. Now director Jessica Kubzansky has taken this famed "history play" and transformed it into R II, a raw and radical re-visioning that features only three actors. Stripped to its essence, R II traces the downward spiral of arrogant King Richard until he is deposed by his cousin, Henry Bolingbroke. Stripped of his crown, Richard is left bewildered while Bolingbroke, now Henry IV, begins to realize the crushing enormity of his new responsibility.
