Henry VI Part III is one of Shakespeare’s least performed plays, with only three major productions in the last 25 years. The Barded Ladies now revive this vibrant work—with a twist.
Shakespeare’s infamous Queen Margaret is reimagined as King Margaret, her adversaries Richard of York and Richard of Gloucester transformed into bloodthirsty women. With a bedrock of Cold War-like tension, this production draws on the current political battles between man and woman in an examination of the roles gender can play in martial politics and war.
