The Nashville Shakespeare Festival continues its 2017 season with Richard II, a co-production with Lipscomb University, which will run from Thursday, April 13 – Sunday, April 23. The rarely-produced play features an all-female cast and will be performed at Lipscomb University’s Shamblin Theatre.
Richard II is William Shakespeare’s historic tale of a vain king and the powers that commandeer him. Sean Martin, a London-trained newcomer to Nashville and adjunct professor at Lipscomb, directs the performance, which features seven local professional actresses and nine Lipscomb students.
Spring Shakespeare performances of Richard II are open to the public and run Thursday through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday show at 2:30 p.m. on April 23. Tickets to the shows are $20 for adults, $15 for students and $5 for Lipscomb University students. $8 School matinees are available by contacting [email protected]. Tickets can be purchased online at theatre.lipscomb.edu or at the door. Lipscomb University’s Shamblin Theatre is located at 3901 Granny White Pike in Nashville.
