‘A mad world of mad kings, teetering on the brink of disaster’

The Royal Shakespeare Company presents a Shakespearean rarity in this exciting new production of King John.

Richard the Lionheart is dead. His brother John is King of England. Threatened from all sides by Europe, the English noblemen, and even his own family, King John will stop at nothing to keep hold of his crown.

Shakespeare’s rarely performed tale of a nation in turmoil vibrates with modern resonance in this vivid new production by director Eleanor Rhode.

“Director Eleanor Rhode’s version is bombastic, stylish and stylised, an impressive visual spectacle...” (The Stage ★★★★)
