Richard is King. A monarch ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man of very human weakness. A man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 years. RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs David Tennant in the title role of 'a definitive production of a great play' (Daily Mail).
Richard: David Tennant Duke of York: Oliver Ford Davies John of Gaunt: Michael Pennington Bolingbroke: Nigel Lindsay Duchess of Gloucester: Jane Lapotaire Director: Gregory Doran
Recorded live at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, November 2013.
What the press said: ''David Tennant gives a bravado performance of a multi-layered, complex and intelligent medieval king in Shakespeare's masterful history play.'' The Daily Express
''Gregory Doran's exceptional production is a rousing triumph.''The Observer
''Michael Pennington is little short of magnificent as John of Gaunt.'' The Daily Telegraph
