This large format, early 1900s theatre programme presents King Richard II. The cover is an etching of King Richard from a picture in Westminster Abbey.

Mr. Herbert Beerbohm Tree played the leading role and produced the play. In a time when plays were becoming more minimalistic, Mr. Beerbohm Tree produced an extravaganza of elaborate sets and grand processions.

In 1909 Mr Tree was knighted for service to theatre.

4 thick paper pages including front and back covers; approx. 28.5cms x 22cms.

 

Condition Code: 3: A lovely example of a programme over 110 years old. A few tiny nicks on spine age; 1cm tear in centre of opening edge of front cover; no folds.
