CANADA: Cineplex Cinemas To Screen Richard II Starring David Tennant

The Cineplex chain of cinemas in Canada will be screening the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Richard II by William Shakespeare, starring David Tennant and directed by Gregory Doran.

The broadcasts will take place nationally on Wednesday November 13th from 7pm.

About the production
Richard II is the first production to be broadcast live from Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's home town. This performance is the first ever live cinema broadcast from the stage of the Royal Shakespeare Company with the sellout production of Richard II (the fastest selling show in the RSC's history), with David Tennant in the title role and directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran.
Richard is King, ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man of very human weakness. A man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 year.
The production also stars Nigel Lindsay, Oliver Ford Davies, Jane Lapotaire, Emma Hamilton and Michael Pennington.

The play will open at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon on 10th October 2013 and will run until 16th November 2013. It will then transfer to the Barbican Theatre in London from December 9th 2013 until 25th January 2014. All performances have now sold out.

It will be filmed for a live stream into UK cinemas on Wednesday 13th November. This recording will subsequently be broadcast into UK schools and cinemas worldwide. Venues and dates are still being added so the RSC advise fans to sign up to their website for notifications.
