Shakespeare’s RICHARD II, co-produced by Perspective Theatre Company, chronicles the historical saga of King Richard II including his controversial time in power, familial conflicts and inevitable imprisonment and downfall. A cast of six actors will portray over 25 different characters. This seldom seen history play seems a perfect choice to revisit right now, as notions of power, leadership, faith and honor all seem to be in a permanent state of chaotic flux in our current political climate. Who has the right to rule? How should a leader rule? What makes a good ruler? Is rebellion against traditions and norms held up for centuries good for a country? Or will it tear us all apart?
