Edward IV

This is Shakespeare's Game Of Thrones

Epic, enthralling, extraordinary. This autumn The Rose stage will be transformed into a battleground for The Wars Of The Roses, a gripping distillation of four of Shakespeare’s history plays, directed by Trevor Nunn – one of the world’s leading Shakespearean directors. Adapted from Shakespeare’s Henry VI Parts I, II and III, Edward IV intensifies the conflict between all those grasping for power. The Civil War ebbs and flows as the throne changes hands. A powerless Henry VI becomes a pacifist appalled by the fighting – his beautiful French wife becomes a warrior queen, leading her army into battle. The white rose triumphs, promoting the accession of young Edward IV, but the red rose fights back and Henry VI is king again.
