Richard II (Unbound Theatre)

The storytellers of Unbound Theatre return to Waddesdon with a right royal performance as part of the 2024 Buckinghamshire Shakespeare Festival.

  • Booking advisable
  • Free event (admission applies)

“Not all the water in the rough rude sea Can wash the balm from an anointed king.”

It’s 1398. England is in disarray as King Richard II struggles to unify the warring factions of the royal household. A botched attempt at keeping the peace soon leads to years of open rebellion, as Henry Bolingbroke dares to challenge the divine right to rule…

One of Shakespeare’s most incendiary plays, Richard II is brought vividly to life in this brand-new production from Unbound.

Designed to introduce Shakespeare’s work to brand new audiences – as well as hardened fans of the Bard – this show really is for everyone. Think Shakespeare is all about shouty men in tights? Think again…
