Kings of War archiveIn Kings of War, Shakespeare's Henry V, Henry VI and Richard III become modern-day political leaders, their fates unfolding in this single, explosive play. Three different rulers in times of crisis. Each faced with the life-or-death choice of whether to go to war. Their decision-making and the machinations of their advisors are laid bare, exposing the conflict between national concerns and self-interest in an era of globalisation.
