The Fall of King Henry | American Shakespeare Center
THE FALL OF KING HENRY (HENRY VI, PART 3)
William Shakespeare
In Shakespeare's brilliant, brutal, and innovative play, England's royal cousins play a deadly game of thrones.  The House of Lancaster, led by the fearsome Queen Margaret, plots revenge and counter-revenge against the House of York, led by Richard and his sons: Edward (who becomes King Edward IV), George, and Richard Duke of Gloucester (who will become Richard III).  Patricide, filicide, regicide, extreme cruelty, and fierce love:  Shakespeare holds nothing back in the thrilling final* chapter in the life of King Henry VI.
