Richard IIDavid Tennant stars as the divine King imbibed with vanity in the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Richard II staged at the Barbican from 9th December 2013. With England's great houses under threat of division in Gregory Doran's production of Shakespeare's history play, the king's vanity threatens to drag his people into a bloody civil war. Tennant is joined by Oliver Ford Davies who plays the Duke of York, both of whom appeared in the Royal Shakespeare Company's acclaimed 2008 production of Hamlet.
