In the aftermath of a bloody civil war, peace and trust are on the cusp of returning to a battered country under the rule of a new king. But the King's charismatic brother, Richard, has his own plans for the throne and nothing--former enemies, loyal allies, or even innocent kin--will keep him from his goal. Exant Arts is thrilled to continue it's tradition of free and accessible Shakespeare in New York City's parks with this freshly contemporary exploration of power and appearance.
