The perfect Shakespeare play to catch during this rough-and-tumble election season, Richard II boasts a riveting plot full of fascinating history and political intrigue. Prone to ruminations on everything from theology to psychology, Richard is more poet than monarch, making him ill-suited for the throne. When he's eventually toppled by his cunning and capable cousin Henry, he loses his earthly power but receives a prize far more important than any kingdom. Actors' Shakespeare Project stages this new production at Cambridge YMCA Family Theatre.
