Shakespeare's Globe on Tour presents
Henry VI: Harry the Sixth
Part 1 of Shakespeare's three great history plays
24 - 28 September 2013
Following the huge success of Henry V, the Globe Theatre returns to Bath with the three plays which make up Shakespeare’s Henry VI.
Shakespeare almost certainly did not set out to write a trilogy. Each play can be enjoyed without knowledge of the others.
HENRY VI Part 1 - Harry the Sixth
“Of all base passions, fear is the most accursed”
Following the death of Henry V, celebrated for having united England and subjugated France, divisions appear at the highest levels – first between those around the infant Henry VI, later between the two great factions in English politics: the houses of Lancaster and York. Only the young Lord Talbot, locked in combat with the bewitching and enigmatic Joan of Arc, seems capable of redeeming a divided and dishonoured kingdom.
