Puppet King Richard II

2nd August 2019 - 14th August 2019

Two used actors, recycled utensils, hand-carved Czech puppets, live music and you, the court, bring Shakespeare’s poetic drama of power and abdication to life. Richard falls from power, exchanging his gorgeous palace for a prison cell. A rich, playful story of love, trust and regime change. Watch out world leaders everywhere. Devised and performed by Gregory Gudgeon and Lucas Augustine. Directed by Linda Marlowe. A hit at Brighton Fringe. ‘Innovative, anarchic’ ***** (TheReviewsHub.com). ‘Fun, entertaining and thoroughly well-acted’ **** (BroadwayBaby.com). ‘Eccentric and inventive retelling of Shakespeare’s tragedy’ (Total Theatre).
