Queen Margaret's version
War of the Roses
Written by William Shakespeare
Directed & Adapted by Ellen Geer
June 24th - October 1st, 2023
What compels those who rule to make war, and not love? The pendulum swings, and a petty universe of leaders works alone, ignoring the needs of those they supposedly govern. Human values erode as governments vying for power overtake the mere living of life. Ellen Geer’s edit of Henry VI Part I, II, III, and Richard III centers Queen Margaret and the women and children of Shakespeare’s civil war saga.
A prologue discussion with the cast will take place before the show at 6:30pm on August 12th. Pay What You Will ticket pricing is available for the 8/18 performance.
