Shining a poetic spotlight on the beginning of the War of the Roses, this tragic tale perfectly mixes Shakespeare's lush language with the history of England. In the process, it reveals a sensitive but flawed king, Richard II, who is deposed by his efficient but passionless cousin, Henry IV, raising questions about the crown, order, and the role of government.
