Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival Presents Richard II

Each summer, HVSF presents plays in repertory under a spectacular open-air theatre tent overlooking the Hudson River in Garrison. King Richard believes himself to be God’s chosen on earth. His word is infallible and absolute. But he is also a flawed human being, ill-suited to the demands of kingship. When Richard banishes his cousin Henry Bolingbroke, he sets off a dramatic sequence of events that seals his fate, splits his kingdom in two, and changes the course of history forever. Shakespeare’s poetic masterpiece is a story of power and privilege, of family and loyalty, of poetry and politics. But beneath all the pageantry is an aching examination of what it means to be fully human. Artistic Director Davis McCallum and a huge cast of fan favorites will come together for HVSF’s first-ever production of this sweeping historical drama.
