King Richard II

by William Shakespeare
Opening Night 30 May 2019
Director: Keith Scott

A rare opportunity to experience the most accessible of Shakespeare’s political plays, a study of a conflicted character that only “Hamlet” eclipses, and some of the most exquisite verse ever written. In an exciting new treatment by Dunedin playwright Keith Scott, this production is a feast for the mind, ears and eyes.
