ABOUT THE PLAY: The original Succession story, RICHARD II tells of a ruler, crowned at an early age, whose poor leadership leads to a loss of faith in the governance of the realm. Featuring some of the richest language in the early modern canon, one scene from the play was used during Shakespeare’s time to incite a rebellion against the crown itself, forcing it to be banned from the original quarto. Centuries later, this tale of the dangers of absolute power continues to resonate with audiences across the globe, and throughout the ages.
