The Tragedy of King Richard the Second | This Sunday at Palace Cineplex
Richard II, King of England, is irresponsible, foolish and vain. His weak leadership sends his kingdom into disarray and his court into uproar. Seeing no other option but to seize power, the ambitious Bolingbroke challenges the throne and the king’s divine right to rule.
Simon Russell Beale plays William Shakespeare’s Richard II, captured live from the stage of the Almeida Theatre in London and made available to cinemas.
This visceral new production about the limits of power is directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins, whose previous plays include Little Revolution at the Almeida and Absolute Hell at the National Theatre.
Simon Russell Beale returns to National Theatre Live screens following broadcasts of Timon of Athens and King Lear, and his recent role in the National Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of The Lehman Trilogy.
Tickets are on sale at the box office –Palace Cineplex, and via the web at www.palaceamusement.com, with any major credit card, or a Palace Card.
