Chesapeake Shakespeare Company presents Richard II
Oct. 23, 8:00 PM to 10:30 PM, Free

Join Chesapeake Shakespeare Company on Thursday, October 23, at 8pm for a free preview performance of Richard II, a richly eloquent yet rarely performed Hollow Crown history play by William Shakespeare. Arrogant King Richard II believes his reign has been ordained, but his warrior cousin Bolingbroke covets the crown. England's throne is at stake and the Wars of the Roses are set in motion when these cousins clash.  "...let us sit upon the ground, and tell sad stories about the deaths of kings."  Lobby doors and wine bar open at 7:15pm. For this preview performance, all seats are unreserved. Experience the play in Chesapeake Shakespeare Company's new downtown theater, with its award-winning, three-level design inspired by the Globe and custom-built inside a landmark Baltimore bank building at 7 South Calvert Street.
