Richard II

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Richard and Anne DiPrima

This summer, we will "tell sad stories of the death of kings" — two of the most famous Shakespeare ever told. Early in the summer, YSP will again present King Richard II— the lyrical and intensely beautiful story of a bad king who becomes a great victim. This tale, told in some of the most beautiful language ever written, begins the era of history about which Shakespeare wrote most of his History Plays.

Produced by Young Shakespeare Players at YSP Playhouse, 1806 West Lawn Ave. in Madison; near Monroe and Spooner Streets, Madison

Performances: July 18-27, 2008

Performance Times: 6pm, Friday July 18-Saturday July 26, Sunday July 27 at 1pm
