A story of power and plotting, Richard II is the first of Shakespeare's four plays about the House of Lancaster. Together with Henry IV Parts I & II and Henry Vpresented by Hong Kong Arts Festival, this marks a complete cycle of KING and Country: Shakespeare’s Great Cycle of Kings.
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.
