Henry VI: York V Lancaster
First performed Autumn 2014
The portrait of a community rife with lies and deception
Henry is weak – naïve, sheltered and all too trusting of the status quo –ill equipped to craft and lead his people. He is overwhelmed by viciousness, in-fighting, lust and greed. Margaret, his wife, commits herself to a tender, passionate and loving entanglement with Suffolk, not her husband – finding herself as much caught up in, as torn apart by, the whirlwind tearing through her newfound home.
