Richard II
By William Shakespeare
A contemporary reimagined adaptation
August 2021(est.), Inside-Out Theatre, Beijing

A contemporary reimagined adaptation loosely based on Richard II by Shakespeare, while it takes place in a restaurant currently owned by Richard as a family business.


This production tries to explore the idea of how Shakespeare’s plays could happen anywhere at any time to anyone. As well as how the so-called historical truth could be recorded. The audiences will be given different routes of receiving information and discuss whether it will eventually generate different standpoints determined by their perspectives.
