What comes of incessant war? The greatest king England has ever known is dead. Now, during the bloody conflict of the One Hundred Years’ War, England enters into a dangerous transfer of power, just as a new champion arises on the French side. Can the English Lord Talbot defeat the young upstart, Joan of Arc?
Come see the first play of Shakespeare’s history cycle at the Old Stone House. Featuring puppetry, music, and daring maneuvers, Stairwell Theater’s Henry VI: Part 1 interrogates the subject of foreign wars – and the havoc they wreak on the world.
