THEATER | "Richard II" 

What's a Shakespeare play without a flawed monarch? The problems that lay heavy on the head of a British king are the raisons d'etre for four of Shakespeare's greatest history plays: "Richard II," the two parts of "Henry IV," and "Henry V," collectively known as the Henriad. The Shakespeare Players will perform the whole cycle this year, beginning with "Richard II," which continues this weekend at MuCCC. This story of a king who loses his throne but gains insight into his soul will present some of Rochester's most experienced Shakespearians, directed by Peter Scribner. Brad Craddock plays the title role and Jeffrey Jones is his nemesis, Henry Bolingbroke.

The Shakespeare Players present "Richard II" on April 22, 24, and 25, at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue. $9-$19.
