Tickets and Calendar
How do you take what was probably Shakespeare's first history play, filled with more characters than any other in the canon, rife with conflicts from days gone by, mount it with a handful of actors, and make it engaging? The Henry VI plays were popular back in the day not for being an Elizabethan equivalent of a reality show, but because they were packed with conspiratorial machinations unfolding right in front of you in an irresistible feast of intrigue.
Post-show discussions each Sunday after 2pm matinee and all 10am student matinees.
