Saturday Lunch with Shakespeare HENRY VI (Sixth) PART THREE
February 15, 2020 from 12:00 (Venue open at 11:30)

Saturday Lunch with Shakespeare HENRY VI (Sixth) PART THREE
Shakespeare's early Henry VI (Sixth) trilogy established the young playwright's popularity. Part Two covers the break-down of order in England as political rivals exploit an immature king, Henry VI, who inherited the throne after the untimely death of his iconic father Henry V. Part Three includes more battle scenes than any other Shakespeare play, including one in falling snow, and the death of the king at the hands of the future Richard III.

The BBC Series provides a rare opportunity to see the plays performed in full, as opposed to heavily edited for stage, TV and movies. The three plays were produced by the late Jonathan Miller and directed by Jane Howell, whose sets, which won much attention for their resemblance to children's adventure playgrounds, gradually fall apart to reflect the political chaos.

The part of King Henry VI is played by Peter Benson and Queen Margaret by Julia Foster.

Introducing this play is Stuart Varnam-Atkin, one of our regular contributors. A long-term Japan resident, Oxford-educated Stuart has carved out a unique career in Japanese media-related activities, including writing, translation, narrating, acting and TV work.
