Edward IV archiveThe second play, adapted from Shakespeare's Henry VI Parts II and III, 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. As the white rose counter-attacks, nobody quite notices the emergence of an ambitious crookback youngster... called Richard.
