CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.

About the Show/Event

The Wars of The Roses Part 1
Information for The Wars of The Roses Part 1 at Swan Theatre, Stratford-Upon-Avon (Play). The glorious Henry V is dead. The new King is weak, manipulated by those on his own side and threatened with civil war by those in opposition. The court is divided as each nobleman takes a red or white rose to show whose side they are on: white for Richard of York, red for the Duke and house of Lancaster, and England is thrust into a battle for the crown between the two factions. Filled with power, passion, politics and revenge, Shakespeare's epic journey through the Wars of the Roses is the ultimate saga. Experience the thrill of rebellion, the brutality of battle, the tension of intrigue and ambition without boundaries as Henry VI takes you headlong through one of the most turbulent periods of English history. We return to our Chronicles of England's kings in 2020 with Part 1 of this epic event, staging the three parts of Shakespeare's Henry VI across two nights.
Author Shakespeare. Company Royal Shakespeare Company. Director Owen Horsley. Director Gregory Doran. Design Stephen Brimson Lewis. Costume Hannah Clark. Music Paul Englishby.
