Shakespeare In The Palms Brings ‘Richard II’ To RPB

Seth Trucks as King Richard II with Thomas Prater and Jay Washington.

Shakespeare fans unfolded lawn chairs and broke out refreshments in front of the amphitheater at Royal Palm Beach Commons Park from Thursday, July 21 through Sunday, July 24 to enjoy performances of William Shakespeare’s play Richard II, adapted and produced by the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival free of charge. One of Shakespeare’s historical plays, it told the story of the ill-fated title character, performed by Seth Trucks. The Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival has been bringing the Bard’s plays to life for more than 30 years at the Seabreeze Amphitheater at Carlin Park in Jupiter. The shows in Royal Palm Beach were added last year. For more information about the organization, visit
