About This Show

An England divided under a weak leader spirals from political unrest to all-out civil war. Allegiances are sworn and murderous factions fight for power, but with only one crown for the taking, who will be left standing to lead the country?

Experience the Wars of the Roses like never before in this dynamic production which sees all three parts of Shakespeare’s trilogy condensed into one epic event.

Were I a man, a duke, and next of blood,

I would remove these tedious stumbling blocks

And smooth my way upon their headless necks.

— Henry VI Part 2, Act I, scene 2

At the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse as part of the Globe winter season.
