Richard II (Royal Shakespeare Company, 2013) (DVD)
RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs David Tennant in the title role. David is joined in the Company by Oliver Ford Davies as the Duke of York, Michael Pennington as John of Gaunt and Nigel Lindsay as Bolingbroke.
Richard II was filmed live in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in November 2013. Richard II is King. A ruler intended by God to lead his people. A man whose arrogance impends to split the great houses of England and strain his people into an imperial and blood-spattered civil war.
