Write sorrow on the bosom of the earth

King Richard II

The play that begins it all. This is the tale of two kings – one who must lose everything in order to find himself, and another whose actions sow the seeds for the conflict that will engulf the nation for almost a century. When Richard abuses his power, Henry Bolingbroke leads an uprising against him and sets in motion a cycle of violence and rebellion that we’ve come to know as the Wars of the Roses. This is Shakespeare’s most searching exploration of the meaning of kingship and the rising powers that can destroy it.
