Love Game of Thrones? If So, You Will Definitely Want to Witness This Tale of Political Power
Watch as a dynasty unfolds during the latest production performed by Orlando Shakes. On Friday, April 12th, the theatre troupe will perform Richard II live at Goldman Theater, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Settle in for a night of high-caliber entertainment when you catch this riveting production!
“I wasted time, and now doth time waste me.” Convinced of his divine right to rule, King Richard II never expected to be undone by his own arrogant, narcissistic, and incompetent reign. By brashly putting his own vanity before the needs of his kingdom, he creates the perfect opening for Bolingbroke to seize the throne. Orlando Shakes’ contemporary production, using a gender-equal cast in the intimate Goldman Theater, reveals how one man’s bumbling mistakes can shape a nation’s political landscape and change the course of history.
Founded in 1989, Orlando Shakes in partnership with UCF (Orlando Shakespeare Theater, Inc.) produces classic, contemporary, and children’s plays. Orlando Shakes has grown into one of the region’s most acclaimed professional Equity theaters, garnering national recognition from The Wall Street Journal’s Terry Teachout: “Hence the high quality of Orlando Shakespeare, a company that deserves to be far more widely known outside Florida.” With ambitious, high-caliber productions like 2018’s Twelfth Night and 2017’s The Great Gatsby, the Theater continues to provide an innovative world-class theatrical experience to its guests, while showcasing William Shakespeare’s legacy as the cornerstone of the company.
Witness a Shakespearean tale of power and politics when you see Richard II live at Goldman Theater. Admission ranges from $37 to $60. Please note that the performance is rated PG-13 and that children under 5 years of age will not be admitted into the theater. For tickets and more information, visit www.orlandoshakes.org.
