We are pleased to present a ‘new’ play by William Shakespeare. King John is a story of a country questioning how its leaders are chosen. It is a story of a country at the end of a period of prosperity and strong leadership facing an uncertain future with an uncertain leader. It is a story of murder, betrayal, and religious intolerance at the highest levels of government. It is a story that questions the reason for and the price of war. In other words, it is a story for our time.
