“I wasted time, and now time doth waste me.”

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Gina Lamparella

JULY 19 - AUGUST 5 | MAIN STAGE

More philosopher than king, King Richard is an intelligent but ineffectual monarch. Convinced of his divine right to rule, he leads recklessly which gives the cunning Henry Bolingbroke an opening to challenge his claim to the throne. Filled with magnificent verse and Shakespeare’s singular wisdom and insight, King Richard II is a deeply moving and illuminating portrait of how the forces of history collide to set in motion a dynastic civil war that lasts 100 years. See this first chapter in Shakespeare’s epic cycle of the wars that shaped a nation’s political landscape. In coming seasons, look forward to the next two chapters: Henry IV, Parts I and II. Ages 10+

Reviews

The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Compelling...”

“Christian Coulson, creates a memorable, ill-fated king...he wins your sympathy with his bravery and freedom from bombast in accepting fate. The weaker his grip on power, the more soaring his poetry.”

“Justin Adams plays Bolingbroke perfectly.”

PSF Patrons

“Wonderful!”

“Very powerful.”

“Incredible!”

The Reading Eagle

“Pennsylvania Shakespeare Fest raises bar with King Richard II.”

“Extraordinary...”

“A grand and memorable performance by Christian Coulson.”

“Stunning...breathtaking insight and bold imagination.”

“A magnificent Justin Adams.”

“A dazzling piece of writing.”

“Bolingbroke is ruthless but also understands the value of ethics, eliminating only those whose actions warrant it. And Adams toes that fine line with such alacrity, fearlessness and empathy that it amazes.”

“Astonishing performances, without a doubt among the best I've seen in 27 years of covering the festival.”

“This is what a company of actors should be, some playing multiple roles and others digging deeply into their souls to mine the truth of the subject.”

“Astounding lighting concepts.”

“Marvelously clever scenic design.”

“Sumptuous and astute costumes.”

“The definitive production of King Richard II. It is quite simply a masterpiece.”

Lehigh Valley Press

“Coulson brings Richard’s vulnerability at the core.”

“Adams plays the role (Bolingbroke) with a forceful enthusiasm. His presence is electrifying.”

“Absolutely enthralling, and perhaps the finest Shakespeare play ever presented at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival. Indeed, PSF crowns a new King.”

“King Richard II is in repertoire with Shakespeare in Love. Each is a must-see. Perhaps even more than once. A twice-see.

The Morning Call

“Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival’s King Richard II is a stunning piece of theater.”

“Director Gina Lamparella’s brilliant vision is mesmerizing from the moment the play opens.”

“Unforgettable...”

“Coulson, is amazing as Richard.”

“The wonderful Justin Adams is powerful as a sober and grimly determined Henry Bolingbroke. Adams’ Henry is a forward-moving force—unrelenting, but not without honor.”

“As the proud and indignant John of Gaunt, Christopher Coucill is compelling.”

“Mairin Lee is memorable as Richard’s rejected and isolated queen.”

“Outstanding performances.”

“Amazing and effective lighting design.”

“Cleverly designed.”

“Costumes are wonderful.”

Dueling Knights for the Heart of Fair England... and the Audience

In “The Knight’s Tale,” one of Chaucer’s stories in The Canterbury Tales, two knights fight to restore the social disorder they see around them. The story swells into an epic battle over the beautiful Lady Emelye. Palamon prays to the goddess Venus that he will triumph only by winning Emelye’s love. Arcite prays to the god of war, Mars, for victory. Meanwhile, Lady Emelye prays to the goddess Diana, wishing the winning knight will be the one who loves her the most.
