The Rose Theatre, Kingston has announced further casting for Trevor Nunn's upcoming revival of The Wars of the Roses.

As previously announced the ensemble cast features Joely Richardson (Queen Margaret), Robert Sheehan (Richard III) and Kåre Conradi (Edward IV).

Joining them are Rufus Hound (Bedford & Bolingbrooke/Cade/Rivers), Oliver Cotton (Winchester/Clifford/Hastings), Laurence Spellman (Young Clifford/Richmond), Alex Waldmann (Henry VI/Tyrrell) and Susan Tracy (Margery Jourdain/Duchess of York).

John Barton and Peter Hall's landmark Shakespearean trilogy is adapted from Shakespeare's 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.

Nunn's production runs in rep from 3 to 31 October 2015 (previews from 16 September). Further casting is still to be announced.
