All three parts of Shakespeare’s Henry VI, directed by Paul Reisman and Dody DiSanto, performed in sixty minutes, by sixteen actors.
Who has the rightful claim to the throne? Who is responsible for the War of the Roses? And how does this epic rivalry drive the action of several of Shakespeare’s most poignant histories?
The Academy for Classical Acting Class of 2019 is excited to explore Shakespeare’s War of the Roses, as well as the Houses of York and Lancaster, through devised movement, actor-created sound, and compiled text from the Henry IV cycle. Building on the success of last year’s devised Hamlet at Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Happenings Happy Hour and our recent Condensed Comedies, the Academy for Classical Acting continues to investigate classical texts and create new, dynamic interpretations for modern audiences.
