Richard II by William Shakespeare
RADA presents Shakespeare for Young Audiences: three abridged Shakespeare plays designed for touring and brought to life for young people (15+).
'Her rash fierce blaze of riot cannot last.'
Richard II's supporters abandon her, but she refuses to relinquish her 'hollow crown' even as her power diminishes. The future King, Harry Bolingbroke, returns to demand justice and to take what is rightfully theirs. England will be tested for remaining loyal to the throne or joining the rebellion against Richard II’s corruption.
This gender-reimagined version of Shakespeare’s tragic tale of demise and succession is a thriller is about power and plotting, leadership and loyalty.
Tickets to this performance in our GBS Theatre are Pay What You Can for under 25s. Find out more.
