National Theatre’s tragic tale

On Tuesday 15 January, one of Shakespeare’s most highly-charged plays is visiting the Edge Arts Centre in Much Wenlock.

National Theatre Live’s ‘The Tragedy of King Richard the Second’ is showing at 7pm, and it stars highly-acclaimed actor and historian Simon Russell Beale as the irresponsible, foolish and vain monarch. 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.

The visceral new production about the limits of power is broadcast live from the stage of the Almeida Theatre in London; tickets are £12/£10. Visit for more details and to book tickets.
