The Royal Shakespeare Company’s residency at the Barbican culminates in January 2016 with a major theatrical event to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. King and Country will see Richard II, Henry IV Parts I & II and Henry V performed in repertoire as a complete four-play season cycle. This is the only opportunity to enjoy the RSC’s tetralogy of History plays as a cycle in the UK prior to its international tour.
