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.
