The Folger hosts a special preview screening of the first ever live cinema broadcast from the stage of the RSC, captured from Shakespeare's hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon. Directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran and starring David Tennant (Doctor Who, Broadchurch) in the title role. The production opens at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon in October and will be captured live during the November 13 performance.

"A beautifully crafted, richly detailed production" -Guardian

Richard is king, ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man of very human weakness. A man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 years.
