Mock not flesh and blood with solemn reverence. Throw away tradition, form, and ceremonious duty.
Amidst worldwide political turbulence, England faces crisis and open rebellion. Living a life of luxury within the crumbling Palace of Westminster, King Richard is increasingly unwilling to face the calamity his failing government has created. As the façade of power begins to dissolve around him, the dramatic downfall of an extraordinary individual begins; an individual who is in equal measures both vivaciously captivating, and excruciatingly cruel.
We Are Animate are proud to present this new version of Richard II. With a strong focus on queer representation, this production explores the power and strength of femininity, and questions what traits are expected, and respected, in a leader.
