shakespeare's Globe, henry VI

The War of the Roses was one of the most significant periods in British history. The blood feud between the House of York and Lancaster played such a monumental part in shaping what our country is today. William Shakespeare was so inspired that he ended up writing a trilogy about it.

All three parts are now about to be shown at Shakespeare's Globe, and will run between 23rd July - 8th September. Tickets to each play are sold separately, so if you want to watch the entire story unfold, then it would be wise to consider how much you are willing to spend. If you don't mind standing, then a peasant's view from the yard is 5 (15 for all three). Seated tickets range from 15-32.

Harry the Sixth (Part one) sees the loss of England's French territories, and has a thrilling battle between King Charles I and Joan of Arc. Part two, Houses of York & Lancaster sees the start of the Kentish Rebellion, led by Jack Cade, and part three, True Tragedy of the Duke of York, bring the end to a bloody civil war.

In addition, you can also book tickets to Perspectives, a discussion on the 4th September that explores the making of the play.

For an even more exciting show, the three plays are going to be on tour during August. Instead of being performed at the Globe, they will be staged outdoors on the historic battle sites. See the War of the Roses re-enacted at Tewkesbury, St Albans Cathedral, and Monken Hadley Common in Barnet. Tickets are 45 for all three.
