    Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, The Winter’s Tale is no lightweight affair; it explores the darker themes of rage, jealousy, treason, and death. Yet though initially an intense psychological drama, as the play unfolds it takes on a lighter and more comedic tone, which eventually gives way to a happy ending. In short, there is something for everyone. What was once a day’s entertainment for the groundlings and the gentry is now the perfect diversion for that long commute.

    Richard II is the first of three plays (the others are Henry IV Parts 1 and 2 and Henry V) called a tetralogy or, as some others say, a Henriad. The story opens with the King trying to adjudicate a quarrel between Bolingbroke and Mowbray. This escalates to a duel, but as that begins, Richard sends both into exile and thereby his troubles begin in earnest. In trying to wage monies for a war with Ireland, he enrages not only the nobles but the commoners too.

    The play centres on the warrior Caius Marcius Coriolanus who, aside from his military prowess and political alliances, supports the old patrician model of Roman authority and is therefore totally out of touch with the needs of the ordinary people. This flaw in his character makes for a great play and is performed by members of the Marlowe Company.
