Richard II (2019)

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

The most accessible of Shakespeare’s political plays, a study of a conflicted character that only “Hamlet” eclipses, and the most exquisite verse ever written. In an exciting new treatment by Dunedin playwright Keith Scott, with costumes by Charmian Smith, set painting by Chris Vialle, this lavish production was a feast for the mind, ears and eyes.
