King Richard neglects his subjects and spends lavishly, giving rise
to his charismatic cousin Henry Bolingbroke. As the battle to rule
England approaches, Richard's supporters abandon him for his rival.
Will Richard learn what it means to be a king before he loses the
crown? Written entirely in verse, Richard II contains some of
Shakespeare's most thrilling language.
