about

Spanning approximately fifty years beginning with the coronation of the king upon the death of Henry V and concluding with the fall of the House of Lancaster, William Shakespeare’s Henry VI trilogy reveals the king’s struggles under the pressures of prolonged wars with his foreign territories in France and Ireland, and the civil war that threatens his reign.

At the beginning of Henry VI, Part III, England is now a nation divided. Unable to maintain a lasting peace between his noblemen, Henry VI must defend his crown on the run from the victorious Yorkists after the first battle of St. Alban’s. Revenge, power, morality, and loyalty come to the forefront within this final play in the Henry VI trilogy as the two sides battle for control and the crown.

Known as “The Bard of Avon,” William Shakespeare is arguably the greatest English-language writer known. Enormously popular during his life, Shakespeare’s works continue to resonate more than three centuries after his death, as has his influence on theatre and literature. Shakespeare’s innovative use of character, language, and experimentation with romance as tragedy served as a foundation for later playwrights and dramatists, and some of his most famous lines of dialogue have become part of everyday speech.
