Adapted from Shakespeare's Henry VI Parts I, II, III and Richard III by John Barton in collaboration with Peter Hall
This autumn the stage of the Rose Theatre Kingston 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, III and Richard III by John Barton in collaboration with Peter Hall, this epic series of plays has been described as Shakespeare's Game of Thrones.
Tickets for all three shows from Keith Prowse (ignore the fact that they seem currently to classify it as a musical!)
A spectacular theatrical event not seen since it was first produced at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1963 by Peter Hall & John Barton, The War of the Roses is a trilogy of plays about one of the most tumultuous and intriguing periods of British history - the 15th century conflict between the House of York and the House of Lancaster for the throne of England.
