The Royal Shakespeare Company's King & Country: Shakespeare’s Great Cycle of Kings, a cycle of four Shakespeare plays about great monarchs, will be presented at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in spring 2016.

The company last seen on Broadway with another royal multi bill, Wolf Hall Parts 1 & 2 this past spring, will perform Richard II; Henry IV, Part 1; Henry IV, Part II and Henry V in repertory at the Harvey Theater between March 24, 2016, and May 1. The productions will be staged by Gregory Doran, artistic director of the RSC. The BAM stand will be the exclusive U.S. engagement for the cycle, which is also scheduled for London (at the Barbican), Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

The BAM appearance will be accompanied by lectures, master classes and an exhibition of materials related to the plays from the Folger Shakespeare Library.

Tickets for the King & Country cycle will go on sale to the general public Nov. 16 at BAM.org.
