King John

“Mad world, mad kings...”

King Richard the Lionheart is dead. His younger brother John secures the throne to become King of England, an inheritance that is instantly contested by the King of France. As countries wage war, John must maneuver himself against a sea of ambition, politics, corruption, and murder that threatens his kingdom. Aaron Posner directs this epic struggle of power and the turbulent reign of Shakespeare’s earliest king. With Kate Eastwood Norris as Philip the Bastard and Holly Twyford as Constance, Arthur’s tragic mother.
