Burien Arts will be presenting ‘Richard II’ as part of its 2017 Shakespeare in the Park series on Saturday, Aug. 5 at Lake Burien School Memorial Park. The outdoor performance will run from 7 â€“ 9 p.m., and there is no charge. Bring your picnic and chair!
King Richard II has a short and troubled reign; heâ€™s often indecisive and at other times abrupt and arbitrary, not always good ways to win friends and allies. His clumsy handling of a dispute between two Dukes, one his cousin, splits the kingdom and sets Richard on the path to downfall. Itâ€™s the first play in Shakespeareâ€™s eight-play, double-tetralogy of history plays chronicling the reigns of Richard II, Henryâ€™s IV, V and VI, and culminating with Richard III. Directed by Susannah Rose Woods.‘Richard II’ is produced by GreenStage http://greenstage.org/shakespeare-in-the-park/ Lake Burien School Memorial Park is located 1620 SW 149th Street: ]]>
