About The War of the Roses

A Shakespearean event of epic proportions. Political unrest and power grabs clash to create one of Shakespeare’s most monstrous monarchs, threatening the country with tyranny. A fast-paced, far-ranging, vividly theatrical depiction of two powerful families—the Houses of Lancaster and York—and their decades-long fight for the English throne, close out this epic summer with this monumental event.

The Guardian UK says “Shakespeare outdoes Game of Thrones...power battles, sex and witchcraft."
