Book Richard II Tickets at the Old Vic Theatre, London

About Richard II

Trevor Nunn directs Kevin Spacey in RICHARD II.

Richard II, believing he’s king by divine right, is confronted by rebellion. He becomes isolated, with a shrinking band of supporters, and detached from the country and its people. Shakespeare’s play questions the meaning of ‘monarchy’ if a divinely appointed sovereign can be pushed aside, and a man with no such claim replaces him in power. Kevin Spacey makes his Shakespearean debut in the UK as the doomed king coming to terms with a life stripped of authority.

This is also the first time that Trevor Nunn has directed this celebrated play, and follows his Olivier Award-winning re-investigation of Hamlet at The Old Vic last year.
