The RSC’s residency at the Barbican culminated in January 2016 with a major theatrical event to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death: KING AND COUNTRY: Shakespeare’s Great Cycle of Kings. Following its London run, in February Henry IV Parts I & II and Henry V  toured to China and Hong Kong, before the complete King & Country  Cycle was presented at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York.
