In this wild carnival of avarice, Shakespeare gives us the glorious second-chapter of England’s Wars of the Roses. Young King Henry’s fierce and ambitious queen, Margaret of Anjou, leads the House of Lancaster in brutal civil-wars against the House of York and its would-be-king, Richard, Duke of York. Witchcraft, demons, murders, the spectacular Jack Cade rebellion, and the introduction of Dickie the crookback prodigy (who will become the villainous Richard III) all conspire to make this play unforgettable and unmissable.
Henry VI, Part 2, opening in February, 2010, is our fourth production in the series The Histories: The Rise and Fall of Kings.
Ticket sales have closed for this production. Please see What's Playing currently at the American Shakespeare Center.
