Experience the Royal Shakespeare Company's five-star production of Henry VI Part Two, directed by Owen Horsley.

King Henry VI's marriage to the French Princess Margaret has caused friction within the English Court. Plots to remove The Duke of Gloucester unfold, the Duke of York lays plans to take the throne, and violent rebellions begin to rise across the country.

In this action-packed retelling of a tumultuous period in English history, a dynamic chorus of the RSC's Next Generation Act young company and Shakespeare Nation community participants join a stellar professional cast. Horsley's brilliant staging focuses on the action of Shakespeare's lengthy trilogy, creating a gripping Game of Thrones-like epic. Featuring Mark Quartley ( Criminal UK, Inside Man), as Henry VI, Mariah Gale ( Broadchurch, Dr.Who), as the warrior Queen Margaret, and Arthur Hughes ( The Innocents, Help) as the Duke of Gloucester, this production is a triumphant exploration of power, betrayal, and rebellion.
