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 Shakespeare’s Henry VI condensed into one epic event.
Were I a man, a duke, and next of blood,

And smooth my way upon their headless necks.
