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. This stunning production of the Bard's historical drama is the fastest selling show in the RSC’s history. Directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran, and captured live in HD from the London stage, this special presentation can be seen only in select cinemas.
