Simon Russell Beale plays William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of King Richard the Second, to be recorded and broadcast live in 2019 from the stage of the Almeida Theatre in London to cinemas. This visceral new production about the limits of power will be directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins, whose previous plays include Little Revolution at the Almeida and Absolute Hell at the National Theatre. Richard II, King of England, is irresponsible, foolish and vain. His weak leadership sends his kingdom into disarray and his court into uproar. Seeing no other option but to seize power, the ambitious Bolingbroke challenges the throne and the king’s divine right to rule. Simon Russell Beale returns to National Theatre Live screens following broadcasts of Timon of Athens and King Lear, and his recent role in the National Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of The Lehman Trilogy. The live broadcast screens at the Bethesda Row Cinema only, on Tuesday, January 15 at 2:00pm. All subsequent screenings will be a recording of that performance.
