There will be a FREE screening of Richard II in Chicago NEXT weekend!! The Royal Shakespeare Company’s Richard II, the fastest selling show in the RSC’s history, was filmed live at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon 13th November 2013, using multiple cameras around the stage and auditorium. The movie theatre rollout that followed proved to be a major success at the box office. The screening was also streamed into schools around the UK, broadcast live across several countries and was viewed in hundreds of cinemas around the world in the months of November and December 2013.

The FREE screening will be held at in the Ferguson Lecture Hall located in Columbia College in Chicago, IL on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014 from 1:00pm – 4:30pm. This is being presented by Ultimate-TV in conjunction with DT Forum. In addition to the free presentation we will be giving away a David Tennant Celebration Gift pack that will include a Richard II poster and a DVD of Richard II courtesy of FYE.


Richard is King. A monarch 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.

David is joined by Oliver Ford Davies, Michael Pennington and Nigel Lindsay, who give outstanding performances in their own right. On the role of King Richard, Tennant adds: “He’s not a hero at all. He’s quite a complicated character. So I’m daunted by the prospect of doing it justice but very excited to get a chance.”

To reserve a pair of tickets for the RSC cinematic production of Richard II starring David Tennant, complete the following registration form.

Don’t miss out on the Chicago encore screening if you are in the area!! And THANKS to our good friends at The Royal Shakespeare Company, The Picturehouse, Ultimate-TV, Your Alternative Entertainment Source, Columbia College and FYE for making this possible.
