Legendary director Trevor Nunn tackles the penultimate play in his mission to direct all of the Bard’s texts in Shakespeare’s epic battle of ascension, King John.

One of literature’s best kept secrets, King John features some of the hardest-hitting writing of the immortal figure’s collection, packed with power struggles, political expedience, treachery and deceit.

Following an inheritance dispute between the youngest brother and the nephew of the recently deceased Richard the Lionheart, war is declared between England and France. But with Richard’s illegitimate son, Philip Faulconbridge, also staking a claim to the throne, who will end up at the fore of the English monarchy, and to what lengths will they go to attain such status?

Featuring England’s vilest and weakest King, and the wildly outspoken and corrosive Philip the Bastard, King John is an extraordinarily uncompromising and relevant saga.
