RICHARD II

RICHARD II
Fantasic For Families
  • Family £55

Picture this:

A kingdom in which a woman is presenting as a man to hold on to power, where feudal law has returned due to global ecological collapse and the ravaging effects of the pandemic. A place where a war is brewing between neighbouring lands, and the politics of old and young wrestle with each other to maintain a fragile peace.

Can you imagine it? We bet you can… it’s not so different from our world.

Quandary Collective’s Richard II blends Mad Max: Fury Road with Game of Thrones to deliver a bloodthirsty outdoor exhibition. This fearless adaptation blends Shakespeare’s text with visceral movement and live electronic music, investigates deeply what it means to lead a country, the devastating effects of toxic masculinity, and why gender continually seems to matter in positions of power.

“For you have but mistook me all this while…”

”What is the price we have to pay for wanting autonomy over our own lives?”

Trigger warnings: Bloody violence, full-frontal nudity
