The first production in the Shakespeare Walla Walla 2014 Mainstage Season is "Richard II" by William Shakespeare. The February 6-9 show is a Shakespeare Seattle Company production and is directed by Rosa Joshi.
Shakespeare's "Richard II" is set at the beginning of the fight for the English throne known as the War of the Roses. King Richard’s antics and arrogance try the patience of the great houses of England and threaten to set them into civil war. When Richard goes too far and seizes lands and wealth from his deceased uncle, his cunning and capable cousin, Henry Bolingbroke, topples Richard from the throne.
