Henry VI

Henry VI

Shakespeare's Globe · 05 NOV - 26 JAN

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?

Overview

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.
