Event Description:
Directed by James Symons

Richard II opens Shakespeare’s epic four-play Henriad, the backstory to England’s bloody Wars of the Roses — the saga that ends with Richard III. Good-hearted yet weak, Richard II is fated to be challenged by the aggressive, popular Henry Bolingbroke. At a time when image is everything in American politics, Richard’s tragedy poses critical questions about how to govern a divided nation. (Look for the succeeding plays in the tetralogy, Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2, in 2014, and Henry V in 2015*.)

* The University reserves the right to cancel or postpone any future performances in this cycle.

Enjoy the full "Shakespearience" with a picnic on the green before the show (all dietary needs will be accommodated with advance notice).  Proceeds benefit CU and CSF!" target="_blank">Click here for more information.
