The stage comes to the cinema
Ah Shakespeare's Richard II. The historical play, which presents a number of themes and motifs which allow us (the audience), to see the flaws in politics, and question the behaviour of those in power, is coming to Cornerhouse. This is RSC Live.

One of the plus points of watching this RSC Live performance is that there's no formality in a cinema; you go in your Converses, as opposed to the black tie dress code associated with 'the theatre'.

RSC Live is also cheaper than the theatre (£15 per adult, £10 concession), and instead of sitting with others, trying not to sneeze in fear of distracting the actors, you can have a (very), quiet natter about the narrative from your seat.

Cornerhouse is privy to one of the first broadcasts from the stage of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Hold on to your hats because Richard II, in cinema/stage version promises to be rather exciting. The edge-of-your-seat play is perfect.
