"Tis much when sceptres are in children's hands; But more when envy breeds unkind division; There comes the rain, there begins confusion."

by William Shakespeare
Directed by Gemma Fairlie
Designed by Robbie McDonnell

Henry VI was forced to take over the English Rose Corporation as a baby. As the son of England’s greatest leader, Henry V, he has been bred for this; but his heart just simply isn’t in it. A fact well known to the ambitious men and women who surround him.

Tensions in the company quickly descend into infighting, backstabbing and cold-blooded murder as this huge corporation descends into chaos and society quickly follows.

A bold new adaptation of Henry VI part 1,2 and 3 inspired by modern tragedies; Succession and House of Cards, and our current political landscape. This is a whirlwind thriller of greed, ego and big business presented by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School’s graduating MFA in Professional Acting students this summer.

Please note there will be a BSL signed performance of this production on Sat 25 June at 3pm.

Students developing and growing in confidence during their time here, seeing their work reaching professional standards in approach and execution; a student who intends to be a stage manager producing a wonderful sound design; a first year student making a lovely recording of a song for their recording project; tracking the careers of former students and seeing them be successful; being able to find a job opportunity for a recent graduate. Frank Bradley, Sound Tutor
