The cast of The Wars of The Roses celebrated opening night at the Rose Theatre, Kingston last weekend with guests including Samantha Bond in attendance.

Trevor Nunn directs the Shakespeare trilogy which is billed as a 'gripping adaptation of four of Shakespeare's history plays, Henry VI Parts I, II & III and Richard III'.

The cycle was first produced to great acclaim at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1963 - this is its first revival since.

The cast includes Michael Xavier, Rufus Hound, Joely Richardson and Robert Sheehan.

The Wars of The Roses runs at the Rose Theatre, Kingston until 31 October 2015.
