King and Country: Shakespeare's Great Cycle of Kings

$35-$200

Richard II, Henry IV Parts I & II, and Henry V—together they tell a tale of family drama-fueled political conflict that spans three generations of the crown. In this momentous six-week residency marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, director Gregory Doran and the Royal Shakespeare Company present the epic four-play cycle in its entirety, offering a rare chance to experience the playwright—and his most fluent interpreters—on the grandest historical scale.
