6.9 out of 10

Drama Olivier Award winner Simon Russell Beale plays the titular monarch in Joe Hill-Gibbins' critically acclaimed, stripped down staging of Shakespeare's drama of fading power, broadcast live from the stage of the Almeida Theatre in London. Richard II, the hopelessly vain and irresponsible King of England, sends his court into uproar with his weak leadership. Ambitious Bolingbroke, who has been disinherited and exiled, scents an opportunity to seize power through stealth and guile.
