“The smallest worm will turn being trodden on, And doves will peck in safeguard of their brood.”
Following up our successful run of Robin Hood, What Dreams May Co in partnership with Queens Shakespeare are pleased to present Henry VI by William Shakespeare (All 3 parts combined into a 2 part repertory production). Join us as we continue our season of badass women, boys who play at kings, and politicians who would be kings…Oh and did we mention swords. Lots and lots of swords.
Director Stephan Bloo Rodriguez (part I), and Christina Sheehan’s (Parts II and III) modern dystopia inspired design transports audiences to a land at war with itself. An England torn apart by personal squabbles and petty jealousy. A place where ineffectual leadership, incompetence, and a lack of compassion lead to a people divided by greed, lust, and hatred and give rise to the worst of humanity’s nature.
We invite you to stare thru the looking glass with us at a world burning unawares, as we play witness to Henry’s fall, Richard’s rise, and what triumphs only when good people do nothing.

About the Company: What Dreams May Co

Simple, minimalistic productions leave the focus on the language and characters, challenging the actors in the company to reach new levels and expand their knowledge of the classics. Passionate performances delve to the heart of the text, bringing the story to life in a way that connects with and immerses modern audiences. After all, "What dreams may come, when we have shuffled off this mortal coil, must give us pause."
