RICHARD II, last presented on the Festival stage in 1993, marks the beginning of Shakespeare's second historical tetralogy, also known as the Henriad. Kentucky Shakespeare will present the four plays over the next four years as their «Game of Kings» series — following RICHARD II with HENRY IV, Part 1, HENRY IV, Part 2, and culminating with HENRY V in 2020, the Festival's 60th season. The production is directed by Associate Artistic Director Amy Attaway, with Neill Robertson in the title role. Richard II features new music created by Scott Carney of Wax Fang. The RICHARD II preview performance is June 15, with opening night June 16.
