Henry VI (Part Three)
"And many strokes though with a little axe,
Hew down and fell the hardest-timbered oak."
Starring Peter Benson, Julia Foster, Bernard Hill, Ron Cook and Brian Protheroe...
When defeat at St. Albans forces Henry to cede succession to the House Of York, an infuriated Queen Margaret fights on, determined her son will be the next King. But with the Duke Of York's death in battle, the future of the throne is once again thrown into question.
Shakespeare's final "War Of The Roses" instalment continues the descent of an ordered World into chaos. Outstanding amongst the play's characters are the ruthless Margaret (brilliantly played by Julia Foster) and the increasingly alienated and enraged anti-hero Richard Of Gloucester (Ron Cook).
