William Shakespeare: The War of the Roses
Often described as the greatest theatrical cycle ever written in English, Shakespeare’s epic history plays thread their dramatic course through centuries rife with warfare, corruption, murder and conspiracy.
The play is performed in two parts over two nights, or a marathon performance running through an afternoon and an evening.
