WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Following up our successful run of Robin Hood, What Dreams May Co, in partnership with Queens Shakespeare, are pleased to present Henry VI by William Shakespeare (all three parts combined into a two-part repertory production). Join us as we continue our season of badass women, boys who play at kings, and politicians who would be kings…oh, and did we mention swords? Lots and lots of swords?
Directors Stephan Bloo Rodriguez (Part I) and Christina Sheehan's (Parts II and III) modern dystopia-inspired design transports audiences to a land at war with itself — an England torn apart by personal squabbles and petty jealousy, a place where ineffectual leadership, incompetence, and a lack of compassion lead to a people divided by greed, lust, and hatred and give rise to the worst of humanity's nature.
We invite you to stare through the looking glass with us at a world burning unawares as we play witness to Henry's fall, Richard's rise, and what triumphs only when good people do nothing.
