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
