Simon Russell Beale plays William Shakespeare’s Richard II, broadcast live from the stage of the Almeida Theatre in London to cinemas. 

This visceral new production about the limits of power will be directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins, whose previous plays include Little Revolution at the Almeida and Absolute Hell at the National Theatre.

Richard II, King of England, is irresponsible, foolish and vain. His weak leadership sends his kingdom into disarray and his court into uproar. Seeing no other option but to seize power, the ambitious Bolingbroke challenges the throne and the king’s divine right to rule. 
 
Simon Russell Beale returns to National Theatre Live screens following broadcasts of Timon of Athens and King Lear, and his recent role in the National Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of The Lehman Trilogy

The Tragedy of King Richard the Second is playing at the Almeida Theatre from 10 December until 2 February. Photograph (Simon Russell Beale) by Nadav Kander.

 

The Almeida Theatre makes brave new work that asks big questions: of plays, of theatre and of the world around us. Recent highlights include Artistic Director Rupert Goold’s productions of Ink and Albion; Robert Icke’s productions of Mary Stuart and Hamlet; and Rebecca Frecknall’s production of Summer & Smoke.
