HENRY VI:THE WAR OF THE ROSES

Local companies have taken on earlier parts of the Henriad—Shakespeare's plays chronicling Britain's game of thrones in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries—in productions of Henry IV and Henry V. But this Bare Theatre co-production with Raleigh Little Theatre picks up as political order breaks down in England when a nine-month-old Henry VI is crowned king following the unexpected death of his father. In this post-apocalyptic England, the houses of Lancaster, York, and Tudor openly battle for power. Director Lucinda Gainey stitches Shakespeare's three-play chronicle of the War of the Roses into a ninety-minute drama, augmented by pyrotechnics from Cirque de Vol. Lachlan Watson stars as the child monarch who must grow up in a hurry. —Byron Woods
