Everyone knows Richard III and the Henrys, but Richard II (who preceded Henry IV, who figures prominently in this play, as the ambitious Bolingbroke) is one of Shakespeare’s most complex studies of power, hubris, ambivalence, and the subjective nature of justice when viewed through hindsight’s binoculars. And because the play is less familiar than some of its counterparts, and almost kinkily revealing about the male psyche in relation to power and competition, it’s especially well-suited to the all-female cast treatment being served up by the excellent upstart crow collective.
