Our troupe will begin an ongoing relationship with the plays of Shakespeare's
Henriad, by presenting Richard II. This lesser known, but beautifully poetic play,
written around the same time as A Midsummer Night's Dream, follows the deposition of Richard by
his cousin, Henry Bolingbroke (later Henry IV) and begins an inherently dramatic
series of events that covers 185 years of English history.
There's drama, intrigue, betrayal and so much more; perfect for a late summer evening.

the names and relationships in our play in this short video,
Richard II: Family Ties.
