Directed by Gregory Doran
ArtsEmerson is proud to present this professional recording of a live performance of Richard II starring David Tennant, produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company as filmed on November 13th, 2013.
Richard 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 civil war that will last 100 years. Royal Shakespeare Company’s Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs with David Tennant in the title role.
The Daily Mail called this performance, “The definitive production of a great play” while The Observer and The Daily Express each awarded the show a five-star review.
