| Richard II
I only watched Richard II thus-far but I think it was a masterpiece within a masterpiece. This profound story with this production level is a staggering accomplishment. Richard II broke my heart.

The story is about a king and a duke who through conviction driven necessary action find themselves at odds with one another despite mutual love in kinship.

What is it to be a king?

What is it to wield power and who has that right?

Where is the line between treason and loyalty?

What is it to put on the crown?
