Henry VI: Rebellion

“I will stir up in England some black storm
Shall blow ten thousand souls to heaven or hell”

With fighting and division in the corridors of power at an all-time high, ordinary men and women start to speak out. But as the people rise in protest, who is behind their rebellion?

Including performers from our Next Generation Act young company and Shakespeare Nation community participants alongside a professional cast, Henry VI: Rebellion hurtles through one of the most turbulent periods in English history.

Originally titled The First Part of the Contention betwixt the two famous houses of York and Lancaster and labelled Henry VI: Part 2 when first published, our Henry VI: Rebellion asks if the people can ever really decide their own future.
