Richard II: The UK TourBuy tickets
A kingdom in which a woman is presenting as a man to hold on to power. Where feudal law has returned due to global ecological collapse and the ravaging effects of the pandemic. A place where a war is brewing between neighbouring lands, and the politics of old and young wrestle with each other to maintain a fragile peace.
Somewhere between Mad Max: Fury Road, an episode of Game of Thrones and a visit to the Museum of British Folklore, Quandary Collective’s Richard II blends Shakespeare’s text with visceral movement and live electronic music. This young company’s fearless adaptation investigates deeply what it means to lead a country, the devastating effects of toxic masculinity, and why gender continually seems to matter in positions of power.
