The Tragedy of Richard the Second, Simon Russell Beale, Almeida

After turning his hand to a stylish, flamboyantly weird take on 'Edward II' at the National Theatre in 2013, director Joe Hill-Gibbins is taking on another renaissance history play with homoerotic undertones. This time, acting legend Simon Russell Beale will star as a king who's power is coming under threat. Shakespeare's text is likely to get a bit of a pummelling in Hill-Gibbins new version, which reworks the story of Richard II's power struggles with an ambitious band of noblemen. 

SRB will be joined by Leo Bill, Martins Imhangbe, Natalie Klamar, John Mackay, Joseph Mydell, Saskia Reeves and Robin Weaver, with design by Ultz.
