Free: “King Richard the Second” by Cleveland Shakespeare Festival

The Cleveland Shakespeare Festival will present a free performance of “King Richard the Second” at 7 p.m., Sunday, June 26 at the Stocker Arts Center Amphitheatre.

Doug Farren adapted the play and will direct the performance. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held in Stocker Art’s Center’s Cinema Hall.

Believing himself anointed by God and infallible, the narcissistic King Richard over-taxes the populace and issues decrees by caprice. Richard exiles Henry Bolingbroke to settle a dispute then seizes his father’s estate to fund a foreign war. While Richard’s army fights in Ireland, Bolingbroke mounts a populist rebellion at home to regain what’s rightfully his, planting the seeds for the War of the Roses that would erupt decades later.

Bring your own blanket or lawn chairs and enjoy this popular free annual event! A great way to spend your Sunday evening with the whole family enjoying spectacular outdoor summer theatre!
