Genre: Classical, Drama, Other
written by William Shakespeare
directed by Steven Cole Hughes

Sonnet Repertory Theatre and Matchbook Productions proudly present Richard II at The Tank this May, bringing an uncommon aspect to this classic: flight. Re-imagined as a tale told by Nineteenth Century artists railing against Imperialism, eight actors, four low-flying trapezes and live music combine to raise the language of Shakespeare to new heights.
