Richard is King. A monarch ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man of very human weakness. A man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last a hundred years.

David Tennant reprises the title role for a strictly limited season only at the Barbican.
