King John - HD Live

Shakespeare's King John is being shown tonight on HD Live at some theatres. The title of the review in the Globe and Mail Reveiw says  of King John: "Cheeky lead performance enlivens Shakespeare’s justly obscure play".

If that isn't enough, you can read what the Toronto Star has to say.

Here is a plot synopsis from the promotional material:
War is the inevitable result when the King of France demands that John relinquish his crown in favour of his nephew, the young Prince Arthur. Excommunication, attempted atrocity, rebellion and assassination all contribute to a political and personal turmoil that finds devastating expression in an anguished mother’s grief for her son.

Enjoy the show.  I am sure I will.
