Abbey Shakespeare Players: Richard II

In a divided kingdom, who has the right to rule?

King Richard impulsively sends his cousin Henry Bolingbroke into exile, and throws a nation into turmoil. As Bolingbroke returns to claim the throne for himself and reunite his country, a struggle for power and loyalty begins.

Shakespeare's beautifully-written play offers a timely exploration of the fall and rise of power.

‘Not all the water in the rough rude sea

Can wash the balm from an anointed king.’

Accompanied by stunning live music, and presented in the magical surroundings of St Dogmaels Abbey, The Abbey Shakespeare Players are thrilled to present Richard II for the first time in our thirty-year history.
