David Tennant's Richard II is being screened at the Picturehouse cinema in Stratford-upon-Avon this afternoon at 2.30pm as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company's Shakespeare On Screen event.
Richard is King. A monarch 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 years. RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs David Tennant in the title role.
