Thomas of Woodstock is sometimes referred to as Richard II: Part One. It is an anonymous Elizabethan drama, which tells the backstory to Shakespeare’s play, staging the events leading up to the murder of Richard’s Uncle the Duke of Gloucester. The King is deeply implicated in his death – and this is the unspoken crisis with which Shakespeare opens Richard II.

During rehearsals, the RSC company read Thomas of Woodstock to help contextualise the opening scene of Richard II and in doing so, they discovered a truly intriguing play.

This script in hand production is directed by Owen Horsley, Assistant Director on Richard II and is cast with actors from within that show.

Followed by a post-show talk.
