About This Show

This is an original adaptation and mash-up of Henry VI, Parts I, II, and III (known as the War of the Roses), exploring the story of Queen Margaret (Katherine Lerner-Lam), probably one of the strongest, cunning, and most complicated woman Shakespeare ever wrote. Director Nicholas Martin-Smith has adapted this production and Jared Kirby, Hudson Classical’s in-house fight director, conceived the idea. Expect plenty of battle scenes and blood, love and drama, as family fights against family in this historical tragedy.
