Richard II

Thursday Aug 1, 2019 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM | Winedale Historical Center | Round Top, Texas

Shakespeare at Winedale’s 2019 Summer Class takes the stage this July with performances of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, Macbeth, and Richard II. The season will open on Thursday, July 18th, and run through Sunday, August 11th.

“We are excited to showcase the breadth of Shakespeare’s work this summer with three of his greatest plays,” says Professor James Loehlin, the program’s director.  “We are performing masterpieces from each of the three genres he wrote in, comedy, tragedy, and history.  The Comedy of Errors, Macbeth, and Richard II are all terrifically entertaining, and really highlight the virtues of Shakespeare’s different styles at different points in his career.”

Richard II:  If God doesn’t make a king, what does? When divine right is challenged, a kingdom is turned upside down. King Richard II is a capricious, feckless ruler who engineers his own downfall. Shakespeare explores the vulnerability of kings in this cautionary tale about abuses of power and abdication.

Tickets are $10 for general admission or $5 for students, as well as UT faculty and staff. Patrons can purchase tickets through the Shakespeare at Winedale website or by calling (512) 471-4726.
