Shakespeare’s Rose Riot – Everglades

When:
Every day until Sun 27 Jan 2019
Details:
This summer Sport for Jove celebrates ten incredible years of theatre-making, ten summers of thrilling and surprising outdoor theatre, with an immersive and ambitious season, 'Shakespeare’s Rose Riot'.

As part of the Leura Shakespeare Festival Everglades will host two distinct but linked productions – ‘The Hollow Crown’ (Richard II, Henry IV, Henry V) and ‘The Wars of the Roses’ (Henry VI, Richard III). Audiences can enjoy either show as a stand-alone production or experience full the cycle by seeing both in one day.

The Productions

When a famous leader of nations is forced to recognise he is no more than a frail human being like everyone else, he implores the people around him to help him understand what the story of living is worth, and what it means to die – “let us sit upon the ground and tell sad stories of the death of kings…”, Richard II asks his friends. We ask you to do the same this summer. To sit upon the ground at Everglades Gardens, to tell stories, to revel in poetry, to think as a community about what nationhood and leadership mean. To bear witness to how Richard II’s deposition, the first formal party room meeting to spill an English king, sets in motion an extraordinary ricochet of political fractures that William Shakespeare turned into the greatest study of leadership, human competition and ambition ever penned.

Rose Riot is Artistic Director Damien Ryan’s furious new adaptation of Shakespeare’s extraordinary history cycle, covering a hundred years of riotous humanity and a pantheon of the earth’s most remarkable political thinkers and drinkers, warriors and clowns, villains, heroines and despots. A thrilling, hilarious, frightening and humane journey from Richard II to Henry IV, Harry and Kate Percy, Falstaff and Henry V, Joan of Arc, Henry VI, the Queens Margaret and Elizabeth, Richard Plantagenet, the Lady Anne and her lover ‘misshapen Dick’.
