British Council and Multikino present the encore screening of Globe on Screen’s Richard II, directed by Simon Godwin.
Ruling by divine right, but himself ruled by caprice, King Richard exiles Henry Bolingbroke and seizes his father’s vast estates. While Richard is distracted by a rebellion in Ireland, Bolingbroke returns to England, intent on recovering his rightful property and, with the support of his disgruntled peers, perhaps seizing the crown itself.
Dazzlingly eloquent and ceremonious, Richard II invests a weak and self-dramatising man with tragic status and represents Shakespeare’s most searching exploration of the meaning of kingship and the rising powers that can destroy it.
The screenings will take place on 14 November 2016 at 19.00 in the following Multikino cinemas: Gdańsk, Gdynia, Katowice, Kraków, Lublin, Łódź (Silver Screen), Olsztyn, Poznań Malta, Poznań Stary Browar, Rzeszów, Szczecin, Warszawa Targówek, Warszawa Ursynów, Warszawa Złote Tarasy, Wrocław Arkady and Zabrze.
Screenings are in English with Polish subtitles.
Running time: approx. 2 hours 40 minutes, including one interval
