Puppet King Richard II
A discovery from the Edinburgh fringe festival 2019
[studio 1 | 90 min | in English | passepartout info see below]
In the court of young King Richard, two courtiers fight about which is the traitor. Richard cannot bear the bloodshed, so he banishes them both. One is his cousin Henry Bullingbrooke, who vows to return. Richard, a notorious bisexual, is hated by the old guard led by John of Gaunt. When old Gaunt dies Richard seizes his lands. His followers desert him. Bullingbrooke marches home, deposes Richard, and takes the throne as Henry IV. Thus Shakespeare’s great cycle of history plays begins. Richard dies alone and forgotten in Pomfret Castle, but first he must face one more battle... with himself.
