When tyranny wins,
who loses?

“Shakespeare outdoes Game of Thrones...power battles, sex and witchcraft” The Guardian UK

Political unrest and power grabs clash to create one of Shakespeare’s most monstrous monarchs, threatening the country with tyranny. When weak leadership and civil strife run rampant, what are the consequences? Who will take the throne? A fast-paced, far-ranging, vividly theatrical depiction of two powerful families—the Houses of Lancaster and York—and their decades-long fight for the English throne, close out this epic summer with this monumental event.
