Director: Adjoa Andoh, Lynette Linton; Written by: William Shakespeare

The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse production of Richard II will feature the first-ever company of women of colour in a Shakespeare play on a UK stage. The idea behind it was to give a post-Empire reflection on what it means to be British, in the light of Brexit and the anniversary of Windrush.

Richard II will begin a year-long cycle of history plays that will include Henry IV, Henry V, Henry VI and Richard III, to explore how Shakespeare himself saw "this blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England".

Richard II tells the story of a capricious king beset by problems both at home and abroad. As his supporters abandon him and his power trickles away he is ultimately forced to relinquish his 'hollow crown'.
