4th - 6th October

by Shakespeare adapted by Quandary Collective

A kingdom in which a woman is presenting as a man to hold on to power. Where feudal law has returned due to global ecological collapse and the ravaging effects of the pandemic. A place where a war is brewing between neighbouring lands, and the politics of old and young wrestle with each other to maintain a fragile peace.


Somewhere between Mad Max: Fury Road and an episode of Game of Thrones, Quandary Collective’s Richard II blends Shakespeare’s text with visceral movement direction by Crystal Zillwood and electronic beats composed by Kester Hynes. This young company’s fearless adaptation investigates deeply what it means to lead a country, the devastating effects of toxic masculinity, and why gender continually seems to matter in positions of power.


“For you have but mistook me all this while...”


What is the price we have to pay for wanting autonomy over our own lives?
