The Life & Death Of Puppet King Richard II: BowerBird Prague

King Richard faces a great reckoning in a little cell. The one-time golden boy is tarnished. He can’t stop crying or talking, in his ragged prison walls. Did he go, or was he pushed? Voices, choices, gilded loam and painted clay – who was pulling his strings? And if the King isn’t in charge, then who is?!

Gregory Gudgeon (The Lion King, Shakespeare's Globe, Complicité & RSC) is the King who can't stop playing. Also featuring Lucas Augustine. Puppets by Jitka Davídková and Brigitte Dörner. BowerBirdPrague are delighted to appear in the exciting new site-specific Cave at Onca Gallery.

“An astonishing staging, thrilling and mesmerising.”
– Guy Roberts, artistic director Prague Shakespeare Co.

“Highly original, really pulls the heartstrings, a highlight of the season.” – HE Jan Thompson OBE, UK Ambassador to the Czech Republic.

“Brilliant. You will want to be in this show.” – Steve Gove, Founder and Director Prague Fringe Festival
