Walking The Dog Theater Presents, William Shakespeare’s Richard II

Walking the dog theater Co., in partnership with Nikita Productions, is presenting William Shakespeare’s Richard II as part of their 21st anniversary celebration.

A story about identity.  Taking place during a dramatic shift in history when tradition, religion and royal lineage get disrupted, the modern age of ruling-by-might is birthed.  King Richard is a sovereign who plays at being King. Crowned at the age of 10, and surrounded by flatterers, he rules by ceremony and pillage, repeatedly claiming his righteousness as God’s anointed minister. His downfall comes when he crosses one line too many, and the consequences of his misrule and lack of self-knowledge finally come home to roost, resulting in the new order of King Henry IV.

Directed by Melania Levitsky, the play will feature live, original music and the following cast:
William Sanderson
Scott Mendelsohn
James Luse
Yuan-rong Liao
Carla Lewis
John Scott Legg
Simon Frishkoff
Sam Ferrone
David Anderson
