Play will be done as a mostly one-man show with puppets
As part of Prague Shakespeare Company’s effort to touch on every play by the Bard in the 400th anniversary of his death, they will present Richard II directed by and starring Gregory Gudgeon from March 31 to April 2 at Divadlo Kolowrat.
He said he is taking a playful approach to Shakespeare’s play about the king of England who reigned at the end of the 14th century.
The play focuses on the two last years of Richard II’s life and more particularly on the crises of the end of his reign.
“I’m trying to find a way of presenting a serious politically complicated and psychologically in-depth analysis of a person in a crisis of power and identity,” Gudgeon told the Prague Post.
